They're the quiet foot soldiers of conservation, seeking greater understanding of waterfowl and their biological needs. These men and women are North America's waterfowl scientists, who work for federal and state agencies, universities, and private conservation groups like Ducks Unlimited. Through scientific research, they unlock the secrets of how to manage waterfowl and their habitats more effectively for the good of these resources and the people who treasure them.

In the process, these researchers also discover many things that can benefit hunters, such as waterfowl migration patterns, food preferences, responses to weather, etc. Following are interviews with four preeminent waterfowl researchers. We can learn a lot from these experts, not only about how ducks react to their environment, but also how to apply this knowledge for better hunting success.
