Georgia is part of the Atlantic Flyway and provides important winter habitat for waterfowl that are produced in the prairies, Great Lakes and eastern Canada. Georgia's coastal wetlands provide important habitat several species of diving ducks like lesser scaup, and puddle ducks such as green-winged teal and wigeon. Interior wetlands and beaver ponds associated with major rivers and winter thousands of mallards and wood ducks, while reservoirs provide important habitat for ring-necked ducks, canvasbacks and wood ducks. DU has worked to conserve more than 27,000 acres of wetlands throughout Georgia since 1985. Our goal is to conserve habitat to secure the future of waterfowl in Georgia and throughout North America. Your support of DU will help us achieve that goal.
