WHC certification adds value to programs by providing third-party credibility and an objective evaluation of projects.

Certification criteria are stringent. Programs must demonstrate that programs have been active for at least one year with a management plan that lists goals, objectives and prescriptions and complete documentation of all programs.

The Certification Review Committee, a panel of WHC wildlife biologists and staff, reviews the materials for certification eligibility and recognizes deserving projects under an appropriate category. WHC offers two separate categories: Wildlife at Work certification and Corporate Lands for Learning (CLL) certification.
