Happy Holidays from Ducks Unlimited
Ducks Unlimited – -(AmmoLand.com)- Tis the season! The holidays are my favorite time of year. It's a time when friends and families gather together for this season of celebration. With a chill in the air and skeins of geese overhead, I'm like a child on Christmas Eve. Soon, my two boys will be home for the holidays, and we'll watch sunrises from the duck blind just like old times.
For that, I thank you.
It's your commitment to conservation that allows Ducks Unlimited to put habitat on the ground and ducks in the sky. Along with our science-based conservation work, your support is not only helping DU make marshes, it's helping make memories of wholesome outdoor fun with family and friends.
Thanks to your commitment to conservation, 2008 was a record-breaking year for Ducks Unlimited. Despite the economic downturn this year, DU supporters rallied to invest record revenues in our conservation work. Through responsible, strategic planning, DU was able to spend 88 cents of every dollar on our conservation mission. And that's the bottom line – habitat conservation.
That kind of efficiency is critical in conservation – especially during times of economic uncertainty – because one thing is certain: conservation can't wait. In fact, DU is stepping up our conservation work on high priority habitats, in public policy, and in science and research. Doing so is critical to the future of conservation.
This holiday season, I hope you find time to enjoy Nature's gifts. As I'm wading through wetlands this holiday season, watching sunrises with my boys, I'll be thanking you for making such experiences possible.
I hope you'll continue to support Ducks Unlimited. We're certainly proud to have you as our partner in conservation.
Warmest Wishes for a Happy Holiday,
D.A. (Don) Young
Executive Vice President
