Ducks Unlimited earns ‘Elite’ honor

SAN ANTONIO -- The President’s Elite are among Ducks Unlimited’s (DU) most prestigious volunteer chapters throughout the nation. Every year, the list is reserved for the chapters that raise $100,000 or more for habitat conservation work. In 2013, the San Antonio chapter made the list as one of the organization’s best fund-raising chapters.

“These fundraising events are the backbone of DU’s habitat conservation efforts, and the volunteers who make up these chapters are the grassroots force making a difference for North American waterfowl populations,” said Ducks Unlimited President George Dunklin. “It takes a great deal of effort to achieve the President’s Elite level, and these chapters deserve to be congratulated by every person who enjoys the outdoors.”

The San Antonio chapter earned a spot in the President’s Elite out of the more than 2,600 chapters nationwide. Ducks Unlimited’s event fund-raising system has become a model for other conservation organizations around the world and has funded a significant portion of the more than 13 million acres of wetlands and associated habitat Ducks Unlimited has conserved since 1937.

The 2013 President’s Elite chapters also have the distinction of being honored during the organization’s 77th National Convention in St. Louis at the end of May, with many chapter representatives in attendance.

“DU chapters across the country are showing that the future of waterfowl populations and the wetlands that filter our drinking water and protect us from flooding are important to them and to their communities,” Dunklin said. “The more money we raise, the more habitat we can conserve and the closer we are to preserving our waterfowl hunting heritage. I would like to personally thank all our President’s Elite chapters for their achievement and look forward to seeing them among our distinguished chapters next year.”
