The Wildlife Habitat Council recently issued certifications to 25 Lafarge sites around North America as part of a global effort to create and preserve wildlife habitats.
Every year, the WHC certifies facilities that have created new habitats. It also renews certifications for those facilities that continue to maintain their habitats.
Among other things, Lafarge was recognized for planting 30,000 native tree seedlings in Georgia, restoring almost 10 acres of prairie land in Mississippi, and creating a safe habitat for red-tailed hawks, northern harriers and American kestrels to live in Quebec.
Since 1990, WHC has certified 489 programs worldwide. The certification program recognizes outstanding wildlife habitat management and environmental education efforts at corporate sites, and offers third-party validation of the benefits of such programs. ? www.lafarge.com ? www.wildlifehc.org
