Wetlands and Waterfowl Habitat Conservation

Our goal is to conserve, restore, and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl and other wildlife. These habitats also benefit people by filtering pollutants from water, replenishing groundwater supplies, and increasing flood storage during storms.

Population(s) Served
Adults

DU's science foundation helps us deliver habitat more efficiently. Our traditional science focuses on biological information related to waterfowl and their habitats. In addition, we are exploring our traditional work's connections to clean water, healthy soils, flood control, aquifer recharge, and shoreline protection.

Population(s) Served

Working with local, state and national policy leaders to advocate for wildlife-friendly policy options such as the North American Wetlands Conservation Act, conservation provisions of the Farm Bill and other funding and legislative options that help improve conservation of U.S. landscapes.
