New Solutions to Old Duck Problems
Delta President Rob Olson presents New Solutions to Old Duck Problems
Delta Waterfowl President Rob Olson introduces the long-term productivity problems ducks are facing across North America and reviews who Delta is and what Delta does.
Delta Waterfowl President Rob Olson describes how the drastic habitat change in the Prairie Pothole region has been the leading factor in the long-term decline of duck productivity.
Delta Waterfowl President Rob Olson talks about the devastating effect of "new predators" in the Prairie Pothole Region and how the increased drainage of small wetlands puts an enormous amount of pressure on early nesting species of ducks resulting in a dramatic decline in nest success.
Delta Waterfowl President Rob Olson has some new solutions: the most important one is Delta's focus on Agricultural Policy which is likely the only way to create a large enough landscape change to positively affect the future of duck production in North America.
Delta Waterfowl President Rob Olson explains how Alternative Land Use Services (ALUS), an agricultural policy initiative, has the potential to create a large enough habitat change across Canada's Prairie Pothole Region to significantly increase duck production.
Delta Waterfowl President Rob Olson describes how Predator Management is another important tool that can change the fate of nesting ducks on the Canadian Prairies by dealing with predation directly.
