GLARO Research: Applications

How research findings are used for conservation

The primary function of Ducks Unlimited's research efforts is to provide information to guide, adapt and evaluate our conservation programs. Information gained from carefully designed research is used to:

  • prioritize where we work
  • identify appropriate conservation actions
  • identify milestones at which programmatic shifts are necessary
  • inform policy decisions

This marriage of conservation and science ensures that each and every DU dollar invested in our conservation programs is used as effectively and efficiently as possible.
