Texas is part of the Central Flyway and provides important winter habitat for waterfowl that are produced in the U.S. and Canadian prairies. Texas is unique in that it winters 90 percent of duck populations and 75 percent of snow goose populations found in the Central Flyway. Rice fields, prairie wetlands and associated coastal marshes provide important habitat for hundreds of thousands of white-fronted geese, several species of diving ducks, mottled ducks and other species of puddle ducks. DU has worked to conserve more than 155,000 acres of waterfowl habitat throughout Texas since 1985. DU's Texas CARE Initiatve seeks to protect and restore an additional 62,500 acres in Texas. Our goal is to conserve habitat to secure the future of waterfowl throughout Texas and North America. Your support of DU will help us achieve that goal.
