In August 2007, KBDJ announced a partnership with the Wildlife Habitat Council (WHC), an international nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the quality and amount of wildlife habitat on corporate, private and public lands. As part of our effort to be WHC-certified, KBDJ has installed bat houses on the site to provide food and cover for some of the 100 million bats that migrate from Mexico to Texas each year. KBDJ is also studying invasive plant species on site, and developing a plan to control kudzu, a fast-growing vine from Asia which threatens the ecosystem by competing with native species for water. KBDJ also collected Christmas trees from Ruby Ranch homeowners and submerged them in the pond on our site to provide additional habitat for fish. For more information about KBDJ’s wildlife habitat preservation program, please visit the news section of this website.
“Our corporate members are the leaders in industry who have gone beyond regulatory compliance and integrated responsible environmental management into the core values of everyday business practices. We are pleased that KBDJ has joined WHC as they demonstrate their commitment to manage their lands to support sustainable ecosystems for the benefit of society.”
