Memphis, TN – Ducks Unlimited, the world’s largest private non-profit waterfowl and wetlands conservation organization, now has a way for members to access the Internet while contributing to Ducks Unlimited’s ongoing conservation efforts. For as low as $9.95 per month, Ducks Unlimited members will be able to subscribe to Ducksnet.com unlimited dial-up Internet access with thousands of dial-up locations throughout the United States and Canada, personal Ducksnet e-mail addresses (firstname.lastname@example.org), award-winning customer service, free optional family-safe Internet filtering, and a customizable portal page with Ducks Unlimited news and hunting information. One half of net proceeds is directed to wetlands conservation.
Ducksnet Internet service is the result of a partnership between Ducks Unlimited and IKANO Communications, the world’s largest provider of private-label Internet services. IKANO served as the official network provider for the 2002 Winter Olympic Games.
As Internet customer loyalty among large, impersonal providers decreases, successful providers are those that are able to offer more than just access and content. Ducks Unlimited, through the Ducksnet offering, is not only able to meet the individual Internet service needs of its almost 700,000 members, but able to bring those members together into a community of like-minded individuals working for an important cause.
“Ducksnet.com is a valuable service to our members as well as an easy way for people to contribute to the conservation efforts that underlie the purpose of Ducks Unlimited,” says Philip Milburn, Ducks Unlimited’s Director of Corporate Relations and Brand Management. “Plus, along with generating funds for conservation, members who use the service will be promoting Ducksnet and Ducks Unlimited every time they send an e-mail from their new Ducksnet address.”
“Ducksnet is a great opportunity for subscribers who are committed to the conservation mission of Ducks Unlimited,” said Henry Smith, president and CEO of IKANO Communications. “We are proud to work with Ducks Unlimited in providing this service to the loyal Ducks Unlimited community of volunteers and outdoor enthusiasts.”
