The Wildlife Habitat Council’s Corporate Wildlife Habitat Certification/International Accreditation Program recognizes commendable wildlife habitat management and environmental education programs at individual sites.
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.
