Ducks Unlimited, Pew sign 10-year agreement to protect Canada's boreal forest

After a decade of unprecedented progress toward protecting Canada's boreal forest, Ducks Unlimited and The Pew Charitable Trusts have extended their partnership for another 10 years and will redouble efforts to safeguard the largest intact forest on earth.

The work is based on a "50-50" concept that provides strict protections for half of the boreal, with sustainable standards applied to the rest. DU and Pew's efforts bring together federal and provincial governments, as well as industry partners, to achieve bold, new conservation measures, and are part of a century of U.S.-Canadian collaboration to protect North America's natural resources.
