conserves, restores, and manages
wetlands and associated habitats for North
United States alone has lost more than half of its original wetlands,
and it continue to lose over one-hundred thousand wetland acres a year.
This affects not only ducks, but also thousands of other wetland-related
species. Ducks Unlimiteds' programs reach from the arctic tundra of
the tropical wetlands of Mexico. They restore native grasslands in the
Great Plains, restore bottomland hardwood forests in the Lower
Mississippi River Valley, protect and enhance the Chesapeake Bay
watershed, and protect and improve wetland habitats in the Central Valley
of California and the Coastal Prairies of Texas, just to name a few.
University chapters are one way in which Ducks Unlimited continues to
grow and expand. Spreading the importance of wetland conservation to
college students will hopefully help foster a love for the outdoors
be carried on for generations to come in local Ducks Unlimited chapters
throughout the nation.
