Ducks Unlimited Canada is launching the Ducks Unlimited Canada (DUC) Endowed Chair in Wetland and Waterfowl Conservation at the University of Saskatchewan. The endowed chair, funded through a $5M fundraising initiative, will focus on research relating to wetland and waterfowl conservation, which will connect to global issues such as water and food security. Mitch Weegman has been appointed chair, and will research environmental issues as well as spend time teaching and mentoring USask students. “In the coming years, Mitch and his students will launch new projects and collaborations to build upon USask’s already established research excellence,” said Peta Bonham-Smith, dean of the College of Arts and Science at USask. “We are proud to partner with Ducks Unlimited Canada on advancing conservation science and creating outstanding new opportunities for our students.” DUC | USask (SK)
