Ducks Unlimited conserves habitat at the continental scale to meet the lifecycle needs of North America's waterfowl. Michigan is part of the

Mississippi Flyway, providing important migration, breeding and wintering areas for many of the continent's waterfowl such as wood ducks, mallardscanvasbacks and Canada geese.

Working with a variety of partners, DU's Michigan conservation program has invested more than $40 million in the state to protect, restore or enahance 82,447 acres of wetlands and adjacent habitat. Michigan's conservation projects are designed to maximize the amount and quality of waterfowl nesting habitat as well as improve habitat conditions for migrating waterfowl.
