Audubon International, an environmentally focused non-profit organization that offers members numerous certifications and conservation initiatives to protect the areas where we live, work, and play, announces today a new partnership with WaterIQ Technologies.
The privately owned company uses Ultrasound technology to combat harmful algae and biofilm without the use of chemicals, protecting bodies of water at golf courses, drinking water treatment facilities, wastewater treatment plants, lakes and ponds from contamination.
In the coming months, Audubon International and WaterIQ Technologies will combine to host informational webinars on lake management as well as develop research projects regarding the methodology, goals and advantages of the Ultrasound technology, which ensures its properties are safe, aesthetically pleasing, and welcoming to wildlife.
“The eco-friendly work that WaterIQ Technologies has done over the years in helping control the spread of algae falls directly in line with Audubon International’s commitment to environmental stewardship, so this partnership works well on many levels,” said Audubon International CEO Christine Kane, whose organization is celebrating its 35th anniversary this year with new programs and initiatives. “We look forward to educating our members and the industry as a whole about this technology and its benefits for the bodies of water found on golf courses and other properties throughout the world.”
“We are excited to work with Audubon International,” said Lawrence Field, WaterIQ Technologies CEO. “We very much subscribe to Audubon’s mission to create sustainable environments, and our partnership is a natural step towards returning algae-infested waters to their natural state. We look forward to working in concert with Audubon International as we introduce ultrasonic water technologies to its members through various educational opportunities.”
Audubon International’s certifications – Audubon Cooperative Sanctuary Program (ACSP), Green Lodging, Green Hospitality, Signature Sanctuary, and Sustainable Communities – are designed to increase environmental awareness, encourage sustainable environmental efforts, and educate both its members and their communities.
The certification programs have received national awards and the organization has enrolled more than 4,000 properties in the golf, recreation and hospitality industries, including small businesses, large corporations, academic institutions, fellow not-for-profits, community associations and local governments.
