Conservation in Colorado
Colorado is part of the Central and Pacific Flyways
and provides important nesting and migration habitat for waterfowl
that are produced there and in the Prairie Pothole Region.
The eastern plains of Colorado, particularly the South Platte River
corridor, are a prime example of the state's top-quality migration
habitat. Under the Platte
River Initiative Ducks Unlimitedís efforts in this
region focus on restoring and protecting shallow wetland habitats
along river corridors. These key stop-over sites provide much needed
foraging and loafing areas for migrating birds, as well as wintering
habitat for such important species as mallard and Canada geese.
Ducks Unlimited is also focusing its restoration and protection work
on key areas across the Rocky Mountain range that contain the highest
quality wetland habitats and concentrations of waterfowl.
Wetlands in the San Luis Valley and North Park provide critical migration
and wintering stopover points for Central and Pacific flyway ducks,
sandhill cranes, water birds and shorebirds. The area is also among
the most productive breeding habitats in North America for numerous
duck and colonial wading bird species.
