I wholeheartedly agree with everything that's been said against duck shooting. I think it's 3rd-world practice and the people who claim anything that's got to do with shooting ducks has got some sort of benefit to the environment should see a psychiatrist.  I want to make one comment, though, and that is that Ducks Unlimited (of which I'm not a member or anyhow affiliated with) started off a few years ago in Australia and for reasons mentioned above quickly changed its name to Wetland Care Australia. And that's exactly what they do, here in SA they do a great job in both planning and assisting with on-ground works in wetland projects, especially since Natural Heritage Trust funding has become available in the last few years .
They don't have a website but an example of one of the over 25 wetland projects they've been involved with can be found at
