Ducks Unlimited: bill will improve wetlands restoration projects across North America
WASHINGTON – March 10, 2010 – The U.S. Senate has unanimously passed a bill to enhance the North American Wetlands Conservation Act and improve continental conservation efforts. Ducks Unlimited supports the measure, which would allow more Canadian investment into the program. The program conserves habitat in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
“The North American Wetlands Conservation Act continues to be one of the great success stories of conservation,” said Ducks Unlimited Senior Group Manager for Conservation Dr. Alan Wentz. “In the 20 years of the program more than 25 million acres of habitat have been conserved. Enacting this bill will help foster future success.”
