The Newfoundland branch of Ducks Unlimited Canada is seeking volunteers around NL to assist with its fundraising events. Typically we host dinner/auction events around Newfoundland and Labrador and the funds raised are used to carry out projects in NL. We have over 40 projects in NL with the largest being our Eider nest box program to help increase breeding success/survival of our sea duck. Over one million dollars was spent on this program with the objective of understanding the biology of our Eider duck and increasing their population. The population (approx 20,000 breeding pairs) is still well below historic levels (over 120,000 pairs).
Volunteers are needed from all over the province, especially in the St. John’s area, Conception Bay South, Southern Shore, Carbonear – Harbour Grace, Marystown, Gander, Springdale, Corner Brook, Stephenville, Port Aux Basques and Labrador City areas. All volunteers are appreciated! Are you interested? If so, contact Paul Wood, Fundraising Manager – Newfoundland (Ducks Unlimited Canada) at (709)489-8147 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
