Rescue Our Wetlands is a campaign for the future. DUC supporters are eager to give their children and grandchildren the gifts of wild places. They’re committed to fostering the next generation of conservation leaders. Their contributions represent hope, progress and positive change.

Shaughn and Sharon Clements live in New Westminster, B.C. Here in the Lower Mainland, dense forest, sprawling fields and lush marshes colour the landscape. Restoring and protecting these natural ecosystems and the wildlife that depend on them will be their legacy.

After doing extensive research to determine what charitable organization they wanted to support, Shaughn and Sharon Clements found a fit with DUC. Their planned gift will support DUC graduate student fellowships, ensuring a strong future for wetland and waterfowl research.

By making generous bequests to DUC in their wills, the Clements carry forward the spirit and success of the Rescue Our Wetlands campaign well into the future.
