We are proud to announce that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) honored Mr. Ángel L. Pérez with the 2015 Environmental Champion Award for his annual commitment in preserving the Tortuguero Lagoon Nature Reserve located in Vega Baja, Puerto Rico.
For eight consecutive years, Ángel L. Pérez along with the International Association of Microsoft Channel Partners, Chapter of Puerto Rico (IAMCP-PR) has shown environmental awareness through this annual event, Clean-up at the Tortuguero Lagoon Nature Reserve. The purpose of this initiative is to educate and communicate the importance of preserving our environment, by safeguarding important areas, integrating the community and promoting a corporate social responsibility message along our business network.
The Tortuguero Lagoon is distinguished for its spectacular beauty and rich natural habitat for aquatic fauna and flora; but sadly has been deteriorated with tons of debris. Thanks to this initiative led by Ángel L. Pérez, the IAMCP-PR, and its volunteers, can proudly say that they brought back its beauty and have helped preserve one of the most valuable ecological areas in Puerto Rico.
