    Project : DUC / Eastern Habitat Joint Venture: Habitat Program 2016-2
    Location: New Brunswick, Newfoundland, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Prince Edward Island, Quebec
    Grantee: Ducks Unlimited Canada
    Contact: David Kostersky
    Funding Partners:  Ducks Unlimited, Ducks Unlimited Canada
    Approved: 04/20/2016
    NAWCA Grant: $2,476,688
    U.S. Matching Funds: $1,238,344

    Joint Venture Region: Eastern Habitat Joint Venture
    BCR: 7, 8, 12, 13 and 14

    This project targets Eastern Habitat Joint Venture priority landscapes and will support breeding, staging, molting and wintering waterfowl by protecting 2,765 acres through fee simple acquisition and protection through conservation agreements. Of those acres, 1,265 will also be enhanced to provide optimal habitat benefits. Project activities will also include management of 1,085,314 acres of previously secured habitat, and stewardship activities will influence 850 acres.

    British Columbia

    Project: British Columbia Pacific Coastal & Canadian Intermountain CONS Program 2016-2
    Location: British Columbia
    Grantee: Ducks Unlimited Canada
    Contact: David Kostersky
