Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) — a national, private, non-profit organization — is committed to conserving Canada's wetlands. DUC’s conservation efforts take many forms. On-the-ground work is guided by the wetland and waterfowl research of DUC’s scientists. DUC works to change policy in favour of wetland and habitat conservation. DUC also delivers wetland and environmental education programs to teach Canadians about wetlands and the need to conserve them.
