NGO Overview, Mission, and Purpose: What We Are About and Who We Help

Ducks Unlimited was founded in 1937, when the Dust Bowl threatened the populations of various American waterfowl. A group of huntsmen made it their mission to prevent populations from reaching catastrophically low levels. Habitat conservation is the name of the game, and Ducks Unlimited is the biggest and the best. Since we are an organization founded by and still primarily comprised of hunters, we encourage hunting. We believe that habitat conservation, wildlife management, and hunting are all interconnected, so as part of our mission we support safe and responsible hunting practices.

NGO "Bottom Line": How We Make an Impact

Ducks Unlimited works every angle to conserve the wetlands habitats of the world's wonderful waterfowl. We partner with government agencies, the scientific community, landowners, private citizens, and a myriad of other entities to best serve our purpose of wetland habitat preservation. Our work relies on biologists, tracking and observing the waterfowl, learning their innermost secrets discovering how best to help them. The policy of constant monitoring and re-evaluating helps to ensure that every dollar spent is working its hardest to conserve habitats and save ducks. Our methods for conservation include restoring grasslands and watersheds, replanting forests, acquiring land, working with other landowners, and developing useful geographic information systems. With all of our hard work, Ducks Unlimited has conserved over 13 million acres of waterfowl habitat.

NGO Job Openings: Who, Why, Where, When, and for How Much?

There are currently fifteen job opportunities available with Ducks Unlimited. These jobs are scattered throughout the United States, and they include positions for internships, biologists, engineers, and administrators. The jobs exist to track habitats and wildlife, and to engineer new and more effective methods of conserving and rehabilitating habitats and wildlife.

Why You Should Join Us...

Our mission is simple: preserve wetlands habitats in order to save the waterfowl. And who doesn't like waterfowl? Surely it is a cause everyone can get behind. "But what about any other of the organizations dedicated to saving waterfowl? Why should I join Ducks Unlimited instead of Infinite Mallards*?" I can see you trying to ask me. Well, Johnny, we here at Ducks Unlimited are both the largest international private wetlands conservation organization, and the most efficient one. If you were to go off and join Endless Geese*, not only would they get less accomplished for our swampy bird friends, they would likely get in our way and prevent us from doing all that we can for our wet avian pals. Another great reason to join Ducks Unlimited is that we were founded by, and are still comprised mainly of huntsmen. That means we don't take the fun out of the existence of animals. Unlike those fascists over at Forever Swans* and PETA, we encourage you to go out and kill our fine feathered friends to your little heart's content. That's what they're there for. So join Ducks Unlimited today, you won't regret it.
