A brief description of plans or programs in place to protect or positively affect identified species, habitats and/or environmentally sensitive areas:

Formal programs to protect and/or create wildlife habitat do not currently exist, however the preservation of green space is very important to our urban campus setting that is located next to the 500 acre Schenley Park.

There are campus spaces where wildlife habitat is untouched; for example, the Gates and Hillman Center has vegetated roofs and slopes that allow for wildlife habitat and the campus has several green roofs which help to increase bio-diversity.

Approximately 2 acres on the south side of the Gates Building is landscaped to improve habitat.
