Our mission is to conserve, restore and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl.
These habitats benefit other wildlife, people and our environment. We partner with government, industry, non-profit organizations and landowners to get our work done so we can connect people to nature and make a healthier world for future generations.
Wetland Conservation: Our Best Chance
We have been working hard for 80 years to save Canada’s wetlands.
These sloughs, ponds, marshes and bogs play a critical role in maintaining the health of our environment, our economy and our lifestyle. Wetlands are one of the most important ecosystems on the planet, but up to 70 per cent of wetlands have been lost in settled areas of Canada. More are lost every day.
Since the first Ducks Unlimited Canada project in 1938, our people have led the way in wetland conservation.
As a registered charity and part of Imagine Canada’s Ethical Code Program, our work is possible thanks to generous financial and in-kind contributions.
As an outdoor community, hunters are among the strongest contributors to habitat conservation and are key drivers of Canada’s economy.
Help connect people to nature and a healthier world through wetland conservation with a career at Ducks Unlimited Canada.
Our partnerships form the foundations of our biggest accomplishments in policy, conservation, research and education.
