Ducks Unlimited stands today as a global force in wetlands and wildlife conservation. DU's conservation programs have evolved and expanded over the years to address the habitat needs of waterfowl and other wildlife on ever changing landscapes. Today, DU and our many partners utilize space-age technology and cutting-edge research to conserve habitat as efficiently and cost effectively as possible.
Trout Unlimitedís mission is to conserve, protect and restore North Americaís trout and salmon fisheries and their watersheds. TU accomplishes this mission on local, state and national levels with an extensive and dedicated volunteer network. TUís national office, based just outside of Washington, D.C., and its regional offices employ professionals who testify before Congress, publish a quarterly magazine, intervene in federal legal proceedings, and work with the organizationís 125,000 volunteers in 500 chapters nationwide to keep them active and involved in conservation issues.
Established in 1981 to battle the problem of dwindling quail and wildlife habitat, Quail Unlimited, Inc. has become the only national, non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the wise management and conservation of America's wild quail as a valuable and renewable resource. Despite a growing awareness of the importance of preserving and improving upland game habitat, more and more of this habitat is lost each year. In addition, severe seasonal weather conditions such as drought and extreme cold can decimate upland bird populations.
