#FarmBill is most effective tool to conserve wildlife habitats on private lands. We need a #2013FarmBill!
is to conserve, restore, and manage wetlands and associated habitats for North America's waterfowl. These habitats also benefit other wildlife and people. The majority of the remaining wetlands in the United States are on private land, where a large majority of all waterfowl are raised. To further our mission, DU supports balanced agricultural policy that can help American farmers and ranchers to be more competitive and successful in fulfilling local, national, and global needs for food, fiber, and energy. In addition, DU supports agricultural policy that conserves soil, water, wetlands, grasslands, and forests upon which both people and wildlife depend. The Farm Bill is the most effective tool for conserving wildlife habitat on private land, and it's DU's objective that both waterfowl and their habitats benefit from this policy.
