Sable Nelson of Wilson, Wyoming
Not all of Ducks Unlimited's members walk on two legs. Sable, an 18-month-old Labrador retriever, is one of DU's Junior Legacy Greenwing members.
Conservation may be a difficult concept for a dog to grasp, but each time Sable retrieves a duck she's doing her part. Her owner, Heritage Sponsor Greg Nelson of Wilson, Wyoming, has been committed to wetland conservation for many years. "I was always told that if you take from the resource, you have to give back," Greg says. "I wanted Sable to be part of the Ducks Unlimited family."
For her part, Sable is eager to continue her waterfowling adventures and do whatever it takes to help the ducks, especially if it involves retrieving.
