The local chapter of Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) raised $60,000 this month at their fundraising gala at the Qualicum Beach Civic Centre.

Wayne Pritchard, BC Provincial Council Chair for DUC said, “this is a wonderful result for our conservation work.”

He said they can leverage the local amount and spend between $240,000 and $300,000 due to matching funds from Ducks Unlimited Inc., their sister company in the U.S., and the North American Waterfowl Management Act funding.

Canada’s leading expert in wetland and wildlife conservation, DUC is active in every province and territory in Canada.

From coast to coast, DUC is on the front lines of conservation and the money the group raises goes towards its many habitat projects. — Submitted
