Ducks Unlimited



Mission
Ducks Unlimited's mission is "to fulfill the annual life cycle needs of North American waterfowl by protecting, enhancing, restoring and managing important wetlands and associated uplands."

Why You Should Support Them
I know that when most people think of nonprofits or charities, they think that these organizations just help people.  However, there are several nonprofit and charitable organizations out there that assist animals.  Animals aren't really capable of telling us what their needs are or asking us for help if they need it.  Thankfully, that's where organizations like Ducks Unlimited comes in.

While we're the same people coming to these animals rescue, some of are the ones sometimes who cause them harm.  We tear down, invade and destroy their natural habitats.  Some us over hunt and kill them just for the sake of trying to win trophies and other materialistic gains.  However, the reality is that all animals play a role on this Earth no matter how big or small we as humans deem it.

Ducks Unlimited, started in 1937, works to make sure that waterfowl and animals living in the wetlands are safe from extinction.  They focus on restoring damaged areas, conserving areas that haven't been severely damaged by humans and conduct research to make sure waterfowl species are thriving.

How You Can Help
There are several ways that we can get involved with Ducks Unlimited and help to reverse as well as prevent  future damage to the wetlands and waterfowl species in North America.  Ducks Unlimited is always seeking dedicated people to become a member of their organization.  You can also volunteer and get hands on with the very wildlife you are fighting to protect.  They also host a variety of awareness and fundraising events throughout the year.
