Ducks Unlimited conserves habitat at the continental scale to meet the lifecycle needs of North America's waterfowl. New York is part of the Atlantic Flyway, providing important migration, breeding and wintering areas for many of the continent's waterfowl such as American black ducks, blue-winged teal and Canada geese.
Working with a variety of partners, DU's New York conservation program restored and enhanced 48,964 acres of wetlands and adjacent habitat. New York's conservation projects are designed to maximize the amount and quality of migration, breeding and wintering waterfowl habitats as well as improve conditions for waterfowl production.
