Protecting Vital Waterfowl Breeding Grounds
Stretching across the Great Plains up to Canada, the Prairie Pothole Region is North America’s most important waterfowl breeding ground, supporting more than 50 percent of the continent’s ducks and geese each spring. Yet this vital habitat is at risk, losing 50,000 acres annually. Together with Ducks Unlimited – the world’s leader in waterfowl conservation – and alongside fish and wildlife agencies, we’re working to protect wide swaths of this vulnerable habitat. The partnership’s efforts have helped protect over 1.8 million acres, paying dividends to waterfowlers and all who enjoy healthy, abundant wildlife.
