DECR’s Environmental Stewardship Awards: 6 June 2016


The Department of Environment and Coastal Resources (DECR) hosted the annual Environmental Stewardship Awards, on the Monday, 6th June, 2016, in honour of World Environment Day (5 June, 2016).


“The Turks and Caicos Islands is very fortunate that it has so many people committed to protecting its wonderful natural environments. These environmental stewards are both residents and visitors who have provided support in a diverse number of ways. Together, their efforts have helped keep TCI beautiful by nature and this is our opportunity to say thank you.” said DECR Director, Dr John Claydon.
