The Buccoo Reef Trust received national and international recognition for its environmental work in 2004. The Environmental Management Authority awarded BRT the Green Leaf Award in the NGO category for its contribution to environmental education and conservation. The award was presented at a ceremony held to celebrate World Environmental Day 2004.
The Buccoo Reef Trust was also honoured by the World Association of Non Government Organisations (WANGO) when it was presented with the WANGO 2004 Environment Award in Budapest, Hungary at the association’s 2004 Annual conference. This prestigious award, which is in recognition of the BRT’s commitment and tireless work in the protection of and sustainable use of the marine resources in the Caribbean, is not only a crowning achievement for the Trust but for all stakeholders actively involved in the conservation and protection of Tobago’s rich natural heritage.
