Habitat destruction is occurring across the globe at an acerbating rate. In turn, birds, butterflies and other wildlife are often without the basic elements needed for survival. A Certified Wildlife Habitat is a place that welcomes birds, butterflies and other local wildlife. All that is needed is to provide the four elements animals need most: food, water, shelter and places to raise young. By doing so, not only are vital habitats restored, but also relaxing places to experience nature are expanded. Become an official Certified Wildlife Habitat(TM) through the National Wildlife Federation’s certification program.
