Western Regional Office scientists Mark Petrie and Kevin Petrik worked with the California Rice Commission to produce a new report titled: Assessing Waterbird Benefits from Water Use in California Ricelands.  Among points made in the report, “a 25 percent loss of rice acreage would reduce our capacity to support duck populations by about 600,000 birds. A 50 percent loss would double that figure to 1.2 million ducks.”  A copy of the report is attached.  For a hard copy(s) of this report, please e-mail me with your postal mailing address at rrosen@ducks.org
