2018 Research Programs

Good management is based on sound science. That philosophy has been at our foundation since Aldo Leopold first advised Delta’s early conservation leadership. To this day, Delta carries on a strong research program focused on ducks and duck hunting issues in North America. Decades of research has shown that duck numbers are overwhelming influence by breeding season events, so Delta continues to focus on management on the breeding grounds – especially the prairie pothole region.
