The National Wildlife Federation (NWF,) certified Embassy Managua as a Wildlife Habitat. Ambassador Dogu unveiled a plaque at the Embassy’s front garden. The ceremony was joined by the Embassy community and representatives from local environmental NGOs.
The NWF’s Garden for Wildlife Program helps people restore habitat and wildlife populations to our cities, towns and neighborhoods. The NWF has recognized over 200,000 spaces representing 1.5 million acres as Certified Wildlife Habitats in suburban yards, schools, campuses, corporate properties, farms, parks and more. As an Eco-Diplomacy effort, the Green Team and Facility Management teamed up to submit an application for Embassy Managua to become a Certified Wildlife Habitat. As of June 1, we now join 15 other posts and the Foreign Service Institute that are recognized by the National Wildlife Federation.
