Started in 1937, Ducks Unlimited is the world's leader in wetlands and waterfowl conservation. Ducks Unlimited "conserves, restores, and manages wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl. These habitats also benifit other wildlife and people". To date, DU has conserved more than 12 million acres across North America. Ducks Unlimited is a non-profit organization, and most of its revenue used in conservation projects comes from volunteer-hosted events. In fact, DU volunteers host more than 4,000 grassroots fundraising events every year, ranging from banquets to shooting tournaments to golf outings. Furthermore, over 81% of every dollar donated to DU goes directly to conservation/education projects.
The Ducks Unlimited - UW Chapter is a student organization composed of a small group of sportsmen, conservationists, and outdoor enthusiasts. Its goal is to aid the greater Ducks Unlimited Incorporation in its goals, and to date has raised over $25,000 for DU. DU-UW raises money through fundrasing banquets held once in both the fall and spring semesters, and organizing these banquets is the club's primary task. Various other events/service projects, such as marsh clean-ups, are also held each year. DU-UW often works in conjunction with the Badger Hunting Club.
