So that’s it; now you know “the secret.” DU is doing lots of important work on public policy issues, and as was made clear by our senior scientists, we must do more if we are to win for the ducks.
For most of us, 25 years in the future seems a long way off. But oddly, when we think of 25 years in the past, 1982 seems like a short time ago. Think about this: We owe it to ourselves, but more importantly to our children, grandchildren, and future generations, to join together and fight to fix things. After all, the future we argue for now will be the one they will have to live with in 30 or 40 years. It’s not far off. Our work now will determine the duck seasons they will have. Our work now will determine their future.
