BMW Plant Spartanburg is committed to the protection of wildlife that call the plant site home. This commitment was strengthened in 2016 with the completion of a site wide biodiversity study. This study was conducted over a one-year period and led to the identification and better understanding of the wildlife living at, or migrating through, the site. Upon completion of the study, BMW Plant Spartanburg implemented some improvements with its wildlife neighbors in mind. One example is the installation of duck nesting boxes at the onsite storm water retention pond. These duck nesting boxes were purchased from the South Carolina Wildlife Federation and provide safe nesting locations for the duck population.
