Garçon went on his first hunt yesterday (he still needs to grow into his tracking collar). A friend of mine took us along with his well-experienced dog to try to find some grouse and woodcock. The search was unsuccessful, but Garçon loved running through the woods and learning to use his nose. He’s more of an upland dog, but I hope at some point we’ll be able to hunt ducks together too–because I love ducks. Many of you are probably asking, “If you love ducks so much, why would you want to shoot them?” The simple answer is because they’re delicious, but the more complicated answer is that the people who utilize a resource are often the ones who care for it the most. Without an organization like Ducks Unlimited, our waterfowl population wouldn’t be close to what they are today. The Memphis, TN based non-profit has become “the world’s leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation” because a small group of hunters were worried about the loss of wetlands habitat and what it would do to the ducks.
If you have half an hour to spend, I highly recommend that you watch The Ducks Unlimited Story, which I’ve embedded below:
In case you don’t have time for it right now, Ducks Unlimited works for conservation in a number of areas including Habitat, Public Policy, Land Protection, Education, and Waterfowl Biology. To date they’ve conserved more than 13 million acres of land (while influencing more than 100 million acres), and the organization now boasts more than half a million members. They are a conservation powerhouse that is “able to multilaterally deliver its work through a series of partnerships with private individuals, landowners, agencies, scientific communities and other entities.” If you’d like to join them, visit the DU Careers page. Right now the best opportunities for new or recent grads are Conservation Specialist (Woodworth, ND), Communications Specialist (Rancho Cordova, CA), and Environmental Markets Specialist – Resource Economist (Bismarck, ND). There is also an Institute for Wetland and Waterfowl Fellowship worth checking out.
