The Prairie Pothole Region of the United States and Canada is referred to as the Duck Factory. We here at DU have a tendency to simply refer to it as the PPR. Sometimes we take for granted the science-based knowledge that is exchanged on a daily basis within the organization. The understanding that the PPR is the foundation for waterfowl breeding populations is easy to say, but for many who live outside this area, it's hard to picture. This photo essay walks readers through the PPR visually, explaining habitat conditions, and providing vivid examples of what waterfowl breeding habitat really looks like, and why it's so important to conserve.
