COVID-19 Accommodations

During this time, we know that maintenance, monitoring, education and other conservation activities may be challenging, or even impossible. 

The Conservation Certification application asks questions about the impact of COVID-19 on your projects. If project continuity (management and monitoring, education efforts, etc.) has been disrupted by the pandemic, please detail the impacts in your answers. All information provided will be considered in the review.

Please note: The base requirements for WHC Certification remain the same. If, because of pandemic interruptions, you have a new program with less than a full year’s worth of monitoring for a habitat or species project, please consult us before applying.

Full details of the accommodations as of 2021 are available in the Version 1.3 document.
Contact us at if you have any questions or concerns.
