Social Impact

WHC empowers companies to cross fence lines and engage in nature-positive stewardship actions that produce benefits to the communities where they work.

Social Impact - Wildlife Habitat Council

Companies worldwide are mobilizing their lands for forestry and biodiversity projects that address a wide range of environmental issues while also forging community connections – both critical in securing and maintaining social license to operate. WHC develops forestry stewardship programs for companies and community organizations to work together to benefit people and the environment. Our partners are committed to collaboration, community needs and maintenance for long-term success.
