Ducks Unlimited (DU)

Research output: ResearchChapter

Abstract

Ducks Unlimited (DU) is a large private organization that promotes the conservation and restoration of waterfowl and wetlands. It had its beginnings in the aftermath of a report by the More Game Birds in America Foundation in 1935 that recognized the importance of wetlands in Canada for conserving waterfowl in North America. This led to the formation of Ducks Unlimited in Chicago in 1937 by concerned waterfowl hunters with a mission to conserve waterfowl habitat. Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) was formed in 1938 and Ducks Unlimited Mexico (DUMAC) in 1970.
