The CCEA Gold Leaf Award recognizes the contribution of individuals, organizations, agencies, institutions, departments or groups. The awards acknowledge special achievements towards facilitating and establishing a nation-wide network of protected areas representative of the country’s landscape and seascape ecosystem diversity.

CCEA has been advocating the establishment of a comprehensive system of protected areas and to plan within the greater ecosystem context. Finding ways to effectively apply the science behind ecological integrity, the restoration of damaged ecosystems, and helping promote assessment methods, particularly through the development of a common suite of criteria and indicators are priority strategic areas of the CCEA.
