Certifying Buddhist Wildlife Habitats

The National Wildlife Federation has an interesting program, wherein they teach you how to establish a wildlife habitat on your property, and then certify the habitat. Once certified, you can display the above sign (they also have other sign designs available). The whole process costs around USD $40, which is reasonable, and the money goes to a good cause. You can begin by clicking here.

Can you imagine the impact, if every Buddhist household in the United States got involved with this program? The collective benefit to small creatures would be substantial, don't you think? Most all of us are doing something very much like this already, so it doesn't take much to incorporate the National Wildlife Federation's effort into our efforts.

I have already encouraged owners of the properties that I frequent to establish them as wildlife refuges, as I believe most Buddhists usually do, and the habitat program feels like a natural extension of that.
