The University of Saskatchewan is the ideal institution for Canada’s endowed chair in wetland and waterfowl conservation.

Located in the heart of the Prairie Pothole Region, with easy access to the western boreal forest, it is situated in the most important landscapes for wetland and waterfowl conservation in North America.

DUC and the University of Saskatchewan also enjoy a long and productive partnership. More than 20 current or former DUC employees studied here—including DUC’s chief executive officer, Dr. Karla Guyn.
