Why our work is needed

Wetlands are valuable natural resources that provide many environmental and economic benefits. What’s shocking is that wetlands are being lost at an alarming rate. We are committed to conserving these critical areas to ensure a healthy future for waterfowl, wildlife and all Canadians.

Wetlands such as marshes, ponds and bogs:

In settled areas of Canada, up to 70 per cent of wetlands are lost or degraded. Every day, up to 80 acres of wetlands are lost. This is the equivalent of about 45 soccer fields every 24 hours.


Ducks Unlimited Canada conserves, restores and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people.


Abundant wetlands and waterfowl – today, tomorrow and forever.
