Since waterfowl conservation began in the early 1900's, it has been widely recognized that maintaining a healthy waterfowl population requires successful waterfowl breeding and nesting. And organizations like Ducks Unlimited provided thousands of dollars to assure the successful nesting of waterfowl in North America, especially Canada. These programs were a huge success and have been expanded through the years to offset drought which has frequently threatened waterfowl populations.
