2022 gift ideas: the best gifts support conservation

This holiday season and for Giving Tuesday, we have gift ideas that help nature while celebrating conservation and Canada's iconic wetland wildlife

Symbolic gift ideas

Good things happen when you make a symbolic gift

This holiday season and for Giving Tuesday, donate to help conserve and restore Canada’s wetlands with a symbolic gift that celebrates wetland wildlife. If you choose to dedicate your donation, you’ll receive a digital, printable certificate to present to your recipient. 

Give a Duck

Your gift donation of just $20 gives one duck the habitat it needs to thrive and maintains that habitat for decades to come. Or Give a Flock to make an even bigger difference! The habitat you help save with your donation provides a better future for us all.

Give a Home for Wild Turtles

A turtle’s shell is a sturdy house, but its home is a wetland! Once a common site in our favourite lakes, all of Canada’s wild turtle species are now at risk in at least some part of their ranges. Starting at just $50, give the gift that helps conserve and restore the habitat they need—and have lost.

Give a Damselfly

Nearly one-eighth of the world’s damselfly and dragonfly species are at risk of extinction, and habitat loss is the leading cause. Just as these species transform throughout their lives, so can Canada’s landscapes. Your gift donation of any amount translates to real, on-the-ground habitat conservation.

Why choose Ducks Unlimited Canada?

Thanks to support from people like you, we are Canada’s wetland conservation leader. We’ve been hard at work on Canada’s landscapes for nearly 85 years, conserving and restoring 6.2 million acres of habitat and influencing another 228.1 million acres.

The habitats we conserve:

  • Support hundreds of wildlife species, including 97 species at risk
  • Help us adapt to climate change by providing a buffer for extreme weather
  • Help reduce climate change by capturing and storing greenhouse gases
  • Reduce the severity of both flooding and drought by acting like giant sponges on the landscape
  • Give us cleaner water by capturing and processing pollutants like phosphorus

We take pride in making the most of your donations. Our goal is to invest at least 80 per cent of our expenditures in habitat conservation annually. In the 2022 fiscal year, our investment in habitat conservation reached 88 per cent.
