Ducks Unlimited Canada completes historic Rescue Our Wetlands campaign

Contact: Gregg Powers – Ducks Unlimited – June 1, 2019
Ducks Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited Canada, Ducks Unlimited de Mexico and Wetlands America Trust committed to making DU’s vision of abundant wetlands a reality through our ambitious Rescue Our Wetlands campaign. The $2 billion continental campaign was launched seven years ago and will go down as one of the largest conservation campaigns in history. The money raised is already being put to work conserving, restoring and protecting critical wetland habitat across North America. Ducks Unlimited President Rogers Hoyt announced during DU’s 82nd National Convention in Hawaii that the campaign, which concluded in December 2018, vastly exceeded the $2 billion goal, raising an astonishing $2.34 billion from more than 2 million donors and conserving 2,236,435 acres.
