The Wildlife Habitat Council Conservation has certified Argos Savannah (Georgia) and Martinsburg (West Virginia) plants for their achievements and commitment to conservation initiatives. The Martinsburg plant was specifically recognised for its efforts with a Black Vulture Management Programme.
To be certified by the Wildlife Habitat Certification, the operations had to demonstrate that they have a meaningful wildlife habitat management and conservation education programme. Their habitats had to be certified locally, the projects had to exceed any regulatory requirements already established, provide third-party credibility, produce an aggregated metric for reporting and demonstrate a long-term commitment to managing quality habitat for wildlife, conservation education, and community outreach initiatives.
The Wildlife Habitat Certification (WHC) is the only voluntary sustainability standard designed for broad-based biodiversity enhancement and conservation education activities on corporate landholdings. The Conservation Certification recognises a wide-range of projects that include native landscaping, mangrove restoration, butterfly monitoring, sustainable hunting to control deer populations, PhD projects and community Earth Day events. The certification is a 2-year certification in which Argos must continue monitoring and meeting objectives to maintain it. WHC programmes can be found in 47 US states and 28 countries.
