Revolving land program
Ducks Unlimited Canada’s Revolving Habitat Conservation Program is another tool to ensure protection of natural and restored habitat across the Prairies.
One tool that allows DUC to stretch the impact of our conservation dollars is a Revolving Land Purchase (RLP).
Agrium Inc. has pledged US$1 million over four years to buy and restore high-priority lands in Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta.
Under the program, land is purchased, its natural function is restored, a conservation agreement is placed on it in perpetuity, the land is resold, and the sale proceeds are reinvested into protecting more important habitat elsewhere.
This agreement is a key part of Agrium’s Caring for our Watersheds initiative.
