Importance of Coastal Restoration

As Tropical Storm Barry approaches an already inundated region, DU points out that wetland conservation efforts may help ease impacts

As the country faces unprecedented flooding throughout the Mississippi River Valley and hurricane season begins, our thoughts go out to everyone impacted, including the thousands of DU volunteers, staff, and supporters. We are all Team DU, and we will band together as always to weather the storm and overcome the damage. The wetland conservation you support and Ducks Unlimited delivers to provide waterfowl habitat also helps to mitigate flooding and reduce storm surge. We are committed to continuing that work today, tomorrow and forever.
