Creating Wildlife Habitats
When productive operations cease, Unimin turns former mining sites into wetlands, prairies and native grass habitats that are ideal sanctuaries for wood ducks, whitetail deer, wild turkey, bluebirds, screech owls and an abundance of fish species. Working with organizations like the Audubon Society, Bat Conservation International and the 4-H Club, Unimin has transformed more than 100,000 acres into healthy and diverse ecosystems.
Unimin also coordinates with the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC) to create favorable environments for wildlife on unused and restored lands. Through its annual certification program the WHC recognizes 33 Unimin sites throughout North America for their superior habitat management initiatives. We're especially proud to have received WHC's most coveted Corporate Habitat of the Year Award, recognizing our conservatory projects designed to reintroduce and protect displaced species.
Investment in the communities in which we work is an investment in Unimin.
