The Building Conservation Trust (BCT) was created to provide vital funding for grassroots-driven projects that achieve one or more of five key objectives: Restore degraded habitats; Create new habitats; Advance the science of coastal habitat and marine fisheries conservation; Foster habitat stewardship; and Educate coastal communities on the value of conservation.
Since inception, funds provided by BCT have proven to be incredibly impactful in the world of marine habitat conservation. Through a highly successful matching funds program, BCT has garnered over $9 million towards over 37 projects, all being placed in our waters.
Make a gift today and you can help BCT tackle marine conservation and restoration around the globe. By supporting BCT, you will help us achieve lasting results providing funding for local, state and national fisheries, habitat conservation, and restoration projects. BCT has created a model for the successful collaboration of business, non-profit organizations, and government agencies to revitalize critical habitat and establish a vibrant foundation for the marine ecosystem.
In 2010, Shell Oil Company announced that it would provide $1.5 million in funding over three years to CCA’s habitat program and paved the way for a series of large-scale, angler-driven marine habitat projects. Years later, Shell continues to support Building Conservation Trust’s habitat projects through its generous ongoing partnership.
Working with BCT, ENGEL will donate a portion of the sales of Kenny Chesney’s No Shoes Nation-branded products to building artificial reefs in the Gulf of Mexico, Atlantic Ocean, surrounding rivers and waterways.
