Nearly 40 conservation partners gathered at Russell Sage Wildlife Management Area to celebrate the completion of the Wham Brake enhancement project. Ducks Unlimited and the Louisiana Department of Wildlife and Fisheries partnered on the project to enhance 3,500 acres of wetland habitat in northeast Louisiana.

I spoke with DU representative Andi Cooper about DU’s unwavering commitment to conservation.

"After adding Wham Brake to Russell Sage WMA, the LDWF wanted to improve waterfowl habitat in this wetland basin and provide increased public hunting opportunities," said LDWF Secretary Jack Montoucet. "As always, Ducks Unlimited’s restoration and engineering expertise was vital to the success of this project."  

The enhancement work is part of a North American Wetlands Conservation Act grant. I want to reiterate that this kind of work by DU goes on in every state of the union.

Ducks Unlimited Inc. is the world's largest nonprofit organization dedicated to conserving North America's continually disappearing waterfowl habitats. Established in 1937, Ducks Unlimited has conserved more than 14 million acres thanks to contributions from more than a million supporters across the continent. Guided by science and dedicated to program efficiency, DU works toward the vision of wetlands sufficient to fill the skies with waterfowl today, tomorrow and forever.
