to protect and manage grasslands for nesting ducks also benefits turkeys. "DU's waterfowl habitat conservation efforts overlap with the biological needs of wild turkeys," says Sarah Fleming, a DU regional biologist. "In New York
, NWTF has partnered with DU on several North American Wetlands Conservation Act
standard grants, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Habitat Partnership grants and Wildlife Habitat Incentive Program grants through the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. These projects meet the needs of wood ducks and black ducks, but also wild turkeys."
