Mississippi Conservation Projects

Mississippi is part of the Mississippi Flyway and provides important winter habitat for waterfowl that are produced in the Prairie Pothole Region and Great Lakes states. In most years, Mississippi winters significant numbers of mallards and wood ducks across the state. Northwestern Mississippi comprises an important portion of the Mississippi Alluvial Valley, known regionally as the Delta. Historically, flooded forests of the Delta provided reliable, high-quality habitat for millions of mallardswood ducks and other waterfowl.

DU has worked to conserve more than 316,000 acres of waterfowl habitat throughout Mississippi. Our goal is to perpetually secure habitat and the future of Mississippi as a key wintering area in North America. Your support of DU will help us achieve that goal.
