Wetlands for Tomorrow Campaign :: Ducks Unlimited’s Initiative Has Done Much But Is Looking to Do More

If you haven’t seen the following in your email inbox, please take the moment to look at it here. Ducks Unlimited’s Wetlands for Tomorrow Campaign is doing great things, and its because of the work of volunteers, supporters, and contributors like you.

Dear Ducks Unlimited Supporter,

Thank you. You answered the call and stood up for waterfowl, for our waterfowling tradition, for our legacy to future generations.

During the seven-year Wetlands for Tomorrow campaign, we raised an amazing $1.88 billion, all for the world of waterfowl and wetlands conservation. With this support from people like you, 2 million acres have been conserved, more than 4,865 projects have been completed and our scientists have led well over 100 different research studies to understand the challenges that lay ahead.

Watch our Conservation Highlights video to see the range and scope of the work that your support makes possible. Join us to hear Jim Kennedy, former president of Wetlands America Trust and lifelong champion for Ducks Unlimited, as he kicked off the largest and now most successful campaign in conservation history.

Your investment has helped expand Ducks Unlimited’s conservation efforts in some of the following areas:

• Protection of the Duck Factory — Thousands of acres of seasonal wetlands and native grasslands have been protected, ensuring the future of North America’s most important waterfowl breeding area.

• Restoration of the Gulf of Mexico — With your help we worked to restore and protect the marshes and bays of the Gulf of Mexico.

• Positive public policies to benefit waterfowl prevailed — Philanthropists like you made the call to Washington to support smart legislation for wetlands.

From the grasslands and oceans to the rivers and lakes, you made the difference. Thank you for answering the call. Thank you for taking a stand to protect our irreplaceable natural treasures.

You are one of a million supporters, a strong force for nature. Today our wetlands face new pressures – looming federal budget cuts that would adversely affect all of us who care about, and have funded, wetlands and waterfowl conservation. As conservationists we will continue to answer every call to do the critical work that will protect our vanishing wetlands. With your steadfast support, I have every confidence we will continue to succeed.

Thank you for making Wetlands for Tomorrow a triumph for Ducks Unlimited!

Sincerely yours,

Jim West
Chief Fundraising Officer

On behalf of Chittenango Creek Chapter of Ducks Unlimited, thank you for what you’ve done thus far. We look forward to doing even more in the coming months and years.
