Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) has been conserving wetlands and their associated habitats for waterfowl, wildlife and people in Manitoba since 1938. That’s the year DUC established its very first conservation project in Canada at Big Grass Marsh near Gladstone, Manitoba.

Manitoba’s wetland habitats are precious natural resources that need to be conserved, restored and managed as part of the province’s sustainable environmental, economic and social future. Research from across North America guide habitat programs delivered by DUC.

DUC employs scientists, biologists, agrologists, engineers and technical staff specialized in the conservation of wetlands and their associated habitats. DUC also partners with other non-profit organizations, all levels of government, landowners and industry to help reach its conservation goals
