Ducks Unlimited

Ducks Unlimited takes a continental, landscape approach to wetland conservation. Since 1937, DU has conserved more than 14.5 million acres of waterfowl habitat across North America. While DU works in all 50 states, the organization focuses its efforts and resources on the habitats most beneficial to waterfowl.

Initiatives:

  • Prairie Pothole Region: The most important and threatened waterfowl habitat in North America. Ducks Unlimited works across diverse landscapes that provide a number of services important to both waterfowl and society. Within the Prairie Pothole Region, Ducks Unlimited prioritizes wetlands and grasslands for the high-quality nesting and brood rearing habitat they can provide. Protection for this valuable habitat is achieved through easements and term-limited conservation programs. Learn more.
     
  • Gulf Coast Initiative: Conserving the most critical wintering habitat in North America. The coastal prairies, marshes, and bays of the Gulf of Mexico are among North America’s most productive wetland systems. They are also among the most threatened with more than 90 percent of coastal wetland loss in the lower 48 states occurring here. The North American Waterfowl Management Plan calls for the Gulf Coast habitats of Louisiana and Texas to winter up to 7.3 million ducks, making it among North America’s single-most important wintering areas and one of Ducks Unlimited’s highest conservation priorities. Learn more.
     
  • Mississippi Alluvial Valley: The most significant winter habitat area for mallards in North America. The Mississippi Alluvial Valley (MAV) represents the historic floodplain of the lower Mississippi River. The MAV is the continent’s most important wintering habitat for mallards and wood ducks, but other species such as gadwall and green-winged teal are also common. Partnering with state and federal partners has allowed Ducks Unlimited to restore and protect key public lands. Learn more.
