A brief description of the wildlife habitat program, policy, or practice:

At the old age forest, located outside the current Richard Ivey School of Business, wildlife habitat is preserved. Unless it is likely to become a safety issue, Western does not maintain this bushy area. Natural regeneration of plants takes place, allowing for the development of habitat for plants, insects, and other types of wildlife. Furthermore, Western works alongside Reforest London to keep these natural areas intact as well as other natural areas around campus.
