DU recognizes LWFC for 50 years of Canadian habitat conservation

BATON ROUGE – December 4, 2014 – Ducks Unlimited recognizes the Louisiana Wildlife and Fisheries Commission (LWFC) for 50 years of supporting waterfowl habitat on the Canadian breeding grounds. LWFC has contributed more than $10 million through the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies' (AFWA) State Contribution Program to enhance and protect habitat where many of Louisiana's ducks are produced. Louisiana has been participating in the program since its inception in 1964, longer than any other state.

2012 Duck numbers remain strong as habitat declines

MEMPHIS, Tenn. - July 3, 2012 - The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) released its preliminary report today on breeding ducks and habitats, based on surveys conducted in May and early June.
