The Wildlife Friendly Enterprise Network offers a range of certification programs that promote best practice standards for farming and ranching enterprises around the world. These standards represent global best practice with input from the appropriate experts to ensure that a) key species of wildlife are protected for net positive impact and b) local communities are actively involved.
