Habitat Management

Under Alberta NAWMP, Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC), and to a lesser extent the Nature Conservancy of Canada (NCC), manage approximately 1.8 million habitat acres of licensed wetland projects in Alberta. Ongoing management and maintenance of these lands includes inspections at various intervals to ensure habitat integrity and safety standards are retained.
