Partnership promotes wetland and waterfowl conservation

A partnership between Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) and the University of Saskatchewan (USask) aims to advance wetland and waterfowl conservation in the country.

Wetland conservation efforts in Canada received a boost on Oct. 10 as USask announced a new partnership with Ducks Unlimited Canada. The two organizations joined forces to create the Ducks Unlimited Canada Endowed Chair in Wetland and Waterfowl Conservation, and also announced a joint fundraising initiative to raise $5 million to support the chair and its work.

In addition to research and conservation management efforts, the donor-funded endowment will provide support for students through graduate fellowships and undergraduate scholarships.
