Ducks Unlimited was formed to provide for the life cycle needs of North America’s migratory waterfowl by protecting, restoring, enhancing, and managing important wetlands and associated uplands. DU is the world’s largest private sector waterfowl, wetlands, and wildlife conservation organization, with one million supporters and members in the U.S. Since its inception in 1937, DU has raised nearly $2 billion and conserved nearly 11 million acres of habitat throughout North America.
