"This in turn is the 40-year story of Ducks Unlimited {Canada} whose active history began in 1938, a year later than the parent company. It is the story of how the money donated by American duck hunters was spent in Canada to preserve and develop waterfowl habitat. It is, in particular, the story of the people who with dedication, experiment, and innovation applied the theoretical concepts of game management to practical problems. Their success reflects the time given generously by an unpaid directorate, the co-operation of Kee-Men, and the free use of land given by both private individuals and governments.": Signed by Author
