The Chapel Hill committee of Ducks Unlimited will hold its annual fundraising banquet at Extraordinary Ventures at 200 South Elliott Road in Chapel Hill on November 6th at 6:00pm. “When it comes to conservation,” said Chairman Mark Cash “there are a lot of people out there with good intentions who would really like to make a positive difference in helping wildlife, but who just don’t know how to go about it.” Cash added that he volunteered to help raise funds for Ducks Unlimited because of the organization’s impressive habitat track record.
Since 1937, the private, nonprofit organization has constructed more than 36,000 wetland conservation projects throughout Canada, the United States and Mexico. These projects now provide 10 million acres of habitat for some 900 wildlife species, including waterfowl and endangered species like the whooping crane and bald eagle.
While Ducks Unlimited has accomplished a great deal since its founding in 1937, the rapid draining of our wetlands demands that the organization continue to accelerate its work. Efforts like those of the Chapel Hill committee are a vital part of Ducks Unlimited’s efforts.
