Rescue Our Wetlands is a seven-year continental campaign that aims to change the face of conservation in North America by securing $2 billion to invest in conservation. Learn more about this campaign in these videos.

Rescue Our Wetlands

Ducks Unlimited has a bold vision-wetlands sufficient to fill the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow, and forever. DU's work also benefits many other wildlife species and provides clean water, recreational opportunities, and other ecological benefits for people. During the Wetlands for Tomorrow campaign, which was completed in 2010, DU raised $1.88 billion in support of its conservation mission. Thanks to the generosity of DU supporters like you, 2 million acres were conserved and more than 4,865 projects completed throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Passion, Camaraderie, Conservation

The heart of the Rescue Our Wetlands campaign, volunteers, members and partners provide the power to drive the DU engine. Event support and other sources of unrestricted revenue provide the broad financial underpinning for our conservation, policy and science programs.

Youth, Legacy, and Wetlands

Educating the public about the importance of wetlands and fostering the next generation of conservationists are key elements of the Rescue Our Wetlands campaign.


Wetland loss continues at an alarming rate and the intricate link between waterfowl, wetlands and people is increasingly fragile. Fewer wetlands means fewer sunrises with wings on the horizon, fewer chances to share a first retrieve with a first pup, fewer memories afield with kindred spirits.


Rescue Our Wetlands focuses on five priorities vital to the survival of wetlands as well as the waterfowl, ecosystems and communities that rely on those resources.
