North American Wetlands Conservation Act—1989

The North American Wetlands Conservation Act (NAWCA) was passed by the U.S. Congress and signed by President George H.W. Bush in 1989, providing federal funding to implement NAWMP in the United States, Canada, and Mexico. Each federal dollar contributed through NAWCA is matched by three dollars (on average) from partners like DU, private landowners, foundations, companies, and other conservation groups. NAWCA has helped fund over 1,800 projects on more than 24 million acres in all 50 states, as well as in Canada and Mexico. Ducks Unlimited led the campaign for passage of this legislation and is a perennial champion of NAWCA reauthorization and annual appropriations in Congress.
