Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) pats its own back – and so they should. It has been 75 years in the making, but they say wetland and waterfowl conservation has only just begun.
DUC celebrated its 75th anniversary in 2013. That’s three-quarters of a century of work conserving critical wetlands including marshes and ponds.
Together, they have conserved 6.4 million acres (approx 2589988ha) and completed nearly 9,400 habitat conservation projects. Building on the strong foundation developed by the founders back in 1938, DUC is continuing their rich tradition of wetland conservation and writing a new chapter for waterfowl, wildlife and all Canadians.
