             21      Anniversary of Ducks Unlimited.
             22      Highlighted Provisions:
             23          This resolution:
             24          .    recognizes the 75th Anniversary of Ducks Unlimited and its great efforts in habitat
             25      conservation.
             26      Special Clauses:
             27          None

             29      Be it resolved by the Legislature of the state of Utah, the Governor concurring therein:
             30          WHEREAS, Ducks Unlimited is widely recognized for its wetland conservation efforts;
             31          WHEREAS, a year-long celebration begins January 29, 2012, when Ducks Unlimited
             32      celebrates its 75th anniversary;
             33          WHEREAS, Ducks Unlimited began in 1937 during the Dust Bowl when North
             34      America's drought-plagued waterfowl populations had plunged to unprecedented lows;
             35          WHEREAS, determined not to allow the continent's waterfowl to dwindle beyond
             36      recovery, a small group of sportsmen joined together to form Ducks Unlimited with the
             37      mission of habitat conservation;
             38          WHEREAS, thanks to decades of diligence in pursuing its mission, Ducks Unlimited is
             39      now the world's largest and most effective private waterfowl and wetlands conservation
             40      organization;
             41          WHEREAS, Ducks Unlimited is able to multilaterally deliver its work through a series
             42      of partnerships with private individuals, landowners, agencies, scientific communities, and
             43      other entities;
             44          WHEREAS, waterfowl are not the only beneficiaries of Ducks Unlimited habitat work,
             45      as wetlands improve the overall health of the environment by recharging and purifying
             46      groundwater, moderating floods, and reducing soil erosion;
             47          WHEREAS, wetlands are nature's most productive ecosystems, providing critical
             48      habitat to more than 900 wildlife species and invaluable recreation opportunities for people to
             49      enjoy;
             50          WHEREAS, the United States alone has lost more than half of its original wetlands and
             51      continues to lose more than 80,000 acres of wetlands each year;
             52          WHEREAS, Ducks Unlimited is a grassroots, volunteer-based organization, and its
             53      members are conservationists and outdoor enthusiasts who live primarily throughout the
             54      United States, Canada, and Mexico;
             55          WHEREAS, for the fiscal year ending June 30, 2010, Ducks Unlimited volunteers

             56      hosted more than 5,200 grassroots fund-raising events, spent the funds raised on its highest
             57      priority areas, and used them to leverage additional funds from other sources; and
             58          WHEREAS, the work of conservation goes on, and Ducks Unlimited has made
             59      enormous contributions to the effort:
             60          NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the Legislature of the state of Utah, the
             61      Governor concurring therein, recognize the 75th Anniversary of Ducks Unlimited and its great
             62      efforts in habitat conservation.
             63          BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that a copy of this resolution be sent to Ducks
             64      Unlimited.
