Where Ducks Unlimited Works

Delivering Continental Conservation for Wetlands and Waterfowl

Ducks Unlimited takes a continental, landscape approach to wetland conservation.  Since 1937, DU has conserved more than 15 million acres of waterfowl habitat across North America.  While DU works in all 50 states, the organization focuses its efforts and resources on the habitats most beneficial to waterfowl.


New Initiative!
​Completing the Cycle

Waterfowl are a continentally shared resource, and Ducks Unlimited has worked across North America since 1937 to ensure a strong future for ducks and for waterfowlers. By contributing to DU's regional fundraising initiatives, you will be supporting the priority breeding, migration and wintering habitats vital to North America's Waterfowl populations.

​The regional initiative below, was created to connect people and resources with critical habitats, and recognize our region's role in sustaining the future of waterfowl and in achieving DU's vital mission.

DU Projects: Atlantic Flyway

Stretching from the Arctic tundra of Baffin Island to the Caribbean, the

Atlantic Flyway spans more than 3,000 miles. 

The easternmost flyway is composed of the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia; the Canadian provinces of Newfoundland, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, and Quebec; and the territory of Nunavut.

The Atlantic is the most densely populated of the four flyways and many waterfowl habitats in this region are threatened by development and urban sprawl.

DU and its partners have conserved almost 500,000 acres of waterfowl habitat in the Atlantic Flyway to date.
