Ducks Unlimited takes a continental landscape approach to wetland conservation and their mission is to conserve, restore and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America’s waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people. Since 1937, DU has conserved more than 14 million acres of waterfowl habitat across North America. Bob will be speaking about Ducks Unlimited’s continental conservation work with a specific focus on wetland conservation in Texas and how DU’s Major Sponsor program impacts these programs. He will also discuss how DU’s Youth & Education program is growing across the nation in high schools and universities, to help educate the next generation of conservationists.” Bob Locke is the Director of Development for North Texas,Oklahoma and New Mexico where he works with individuals, companies and foundations to support DU’s conservation work through the Major Sponsor Program. He also serves on the National Youth Education Committee.
