Bonefish & Tarpon Trust will soon celebrate its 20th Anniversary. We’ve come a long way in the past two decades, advancing our mission through innovative scientific research, conservation action, education and advocacy. As we prepare to step into a new decade, we want to hear from you!
We hope you’ll take a few minutes to complete our short survey. Your feedback will help shape our conservation agenda and future growth. You have the option to remain anonymous or share your name and email to be entered in a drawing for your choice of two grand prizes: 8 weight Orvis Helios 2 fly rod and Mirage reel OR a G. Loomis E6x 843S F rod and a Shimano Stradic 2500 reel. Both come with an additional prize package including a hat, decal and other BTT branded items.
Thank you for taking our survey. Your participation and support will enable us to conserve bonefish, tarpon and permit—the species, their habitats and the larger fisheries they support. (photo: Pat Ford)
