WHC Certified Sites

In 1990, Vulcan's Sanders Quarry became the first site in the country to obtain certification by the Wildlife Habitat Council as a sanctioned, enhanced habitat for indigenous wildlife on corporate lands. Since then, Vulcan has received accreditation for 44 quarry sites containing wildlife enhancement programs.

The Wildlife Habitat Council was developed in 1988 to restore and improve wildlife environments through the help of corporations, conservation organizations and individuals. WHC is a nonprofit, nonlobbying organization that assists landowners in turning unused lands into environmentally safe and flourishing ecosystems.

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.
