A brief description of the wildlife habitat program, policy, or practice:
UF's Master Plan includes a conservation element covering the Conservation Areas on campus. There are 447 acres of wetland and upland areas on main campus in 31 Conservation Areas that are covered in 23 specific area plans that fall under the umbrella of the Conservation Area Land Management plan (CALM).
These plans provided the framework for the Conservation Element of the Campus Master Plan. They also help to fulfill the University's role as Pilot for the Audubon International Cooperative Sanctuary (University or College) Program. The University of Florida was the first university in the country to set university wide environmental planning standards with this nonprofit organization.
