The 100-acre Shell Woodcreek corporate campus in the Energy Corridor, located west of Houston, has been designated by the nonprofit Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) as Certified Gold, earning the highest tier of 700 WHC Conservation Certification programs.
“Our campus has become a welcoming stop on the Texas Monarch Flyway Strategy Program for migrating butterflies that travel annually along the Central Migration Flyway from Canada to Mexico and back, Marti Powers External Relations Country Manager US.
“It’s also become a learning center for employees during Powering Conservation Day, which gives staff the tools to support conservation efforts that benefit people, plants and animals in Houston and the rest of Texas.”
“Employees and our contract partners make the difference,” said Robert L Miller, Shell Woodcreek Manager. “On campus, the team plants native species to keep our native prairie and riparian habitats vibrant and is mindful of active birds and wildlife.”
“Shell Woodcreek is recognized as meeting the strict requirements of WHC Conservation Certification,” said Margaret O’Gorman, President, WHC. “Companies achieving WHC Conservation Certification, like Shell, are environmental leaders, voluntarily managing their lands to support sustainable ecosystems and the communities that surround them.”
The Wildlife Habitat Council promotes and certifies habitat conservation and management on corporate lands through partnerships and education. WHC Conservation Certification programs take corporate sustainability goals and objectives and translate them into tangible and measurable on-the-ground actions.
