BP settlement funds flow to Allan/Dana Hills

Waterfowl like lesser scaup are frequent visitors to the grassland and shallow wetlands nestled into the rolling Allan/Dana Hills.

DUC’s conservation leadership is being acknowledged as a recipient of settlement funds from the BP Oil Spill, as part of the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.

These funds were allocated by the North American Wetlands Conservation Council and made available to DUC thanks to our strong scientific understanding of the landscape and knowledge of migratory birds.

Saskatchewan’s Allan/Dana Hills have been identified as a focus area with strong migratory relationships with the birds affected by the spill. DUC is working in the area to restore and retain important wetland habitat that will support species affected by the 2010 disaster.
