Adding, Editing and Deleting Projects

Conservation Certification recognizes efforts that are encompassed in one or more of the 24 project types. Most programs contain more than one project, and the number of projects in a program can change over time. WHC encourages starting with a small number of projects and adding projects over time. 

Adding Projects

When a program is added to the certification website, the first step is to add all of the habitat types that are found on the program site (whether the habitats are being managed or not).

Before adding projects, WHC encourages you to conduct the step by step program mapping  exercise to ensure you select the right project type that best represents your activities and avoids project overlap. This will also help ensure that all efforts can be appropriately recognized in the review.

After the habitats found on site have been added, additional projects and habitats can be added by clicking on the New Project button.

Editing Projects

Most of the project information is contained in the application form. The application form is available to add to and edit at any time.

Higher level information about the project, including the Project Name and, for habitats, whether or not it is actively managed can be edited through the Project Info button, which can be found at the bottom left of the project application form.

Deleting Projects

To delete a project entirely, go to the Project Info page and click the Delete Project button. This capability should be used carefully as once a project has been deleted, all of the information entered for that project is lost. 

Designating Inactive Projects

If there is a project in your projects list that is no longer active and will be discontinued, then you should follow the steps above to delete the project from the program.

If the inactive project may be resumed in the future, you can leave the project in the program. Only projects marked as complete will be visible and evaluated by the reviewers. Inactive projects can remain In Progress when submitting so that they are available for your next application.
