This credit is weighted more heavily for institutions that own or manage land that includes or is adjacent to any of the following:
Institutions may identify legally protected areas, internationally recognized areas, priority sites for biodiversity, and regions of conservation importance using the Integrated Biodiversity Assessment Tool (IBAT) for Research & Conservation Planning, the U.S. Information, Planning, and Conservation (IPaC) decision support system, or an equivalent resource or study.
Wesleyan does not have an official policy to preserve and create wildlife habitat, but utilizes land-use practices that protect wildlife habitat. In Fall 2012, eight acres of the Long Lane property in front of the Cady Building were planted with native CT grasses to create wildlife habitat. Wesleyan also has 89 acres of wooded areas and hayfields. Wooded areas are unmaintained to provide wildlife habitat and recreational areas.
