The "Rescue the Duck Factory" campaign has become a priority for Ducks Unlimited because of new pressures on landowners within the Prairie Pothole Region (PPR). The funds raised through this campaign will be directed toward perpetual land easements on native grasslands in the PPR, also known as the "duck factory."
The Opportunity is Now
There are currently 650 landowners offering DU the chance to place permanent easements on native grasslands in North and South Dakota. DU can protect one acre for a one-time investment of only $360. The opportunity is short term, yet the effects of conserving this acreage will last forever. Current funding is low, and we need your help to secure as much of this available acreage as possible!
Our vision is wetlands sufficient to fill the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow and forever. With your contribution we can continue to work toward that goal.
This prairie acreage is vital to North American waterfowl production and it’s crucial that we act now.
The decisions we make in the duck factory right now will directly affect waterfowl populations and our waterfowl hunting heritage for future generations.
