Overview of Requirements

In order for a program to receive Conservation Certification, it must have at least one qualifying Habitat, Species or Education project. (A program can also be certified if it has a qualifying Integrated Vegetation Management project.)

Requirements for Qualifying Projects

The specific requirements to determine qualifying projects can vary, but there are universal concepts across project types.
 Qualifying projects must:

1.   Be locally appropriate
2.   Exceed any relevant regulatory requirements
3.   Have a conservation or conservation education objective
4.   Provide conservation or conservation education value
5.   Have documented measurable outcomes
Each of the above project requirements are addressed by specific questions in the application and corresponding scoring criteria.
