Aubrey Shepherd Ducks Unlimited Banquet Planned ciwiniiiiiiiMiiiiwiiiiiiiiiiainiiniiininiiiiDitiieiiiMiirininiiHiun while program this Ducks Unlimited, an Conservationists and sportsmen have an opportunity to make a contribution to a worth- month, organization with a long-established reputation in. ecology and conservation, has scheduled one of Its popular fund-raising parties for Fayettevlllo. The October 16 event is slated to take place at the Elks Lodge at Zion Road and Highway 71 at 7:30 p.m. A recent'television news report seen in the Northwest Arkansas area showed such a banquet in Joplin, and the event appeared Nnrtmurat Arkansas (li NorthwMt Arkanwi TIMES, Tuet., Oct. 8, 1974 very successful. DU parties are well-known attention getters, for the organizers have 'developed some sure - fire people - pleasing activities which serve to motivate contributions to the very worthy cause of preservation of wetlands for the sake of ducks, geese and other wildlife. Drawings, auctions and the sale of beverages at the meeting will be among the means of painlessly extracting some funds for the feathered ones. Some people interested ecology may be under the false impression this is an organization of duck hunters, but this is not true. There are many members who n e v e r hunt at but who r e c o g n i z e value of w i 1 d f ow 1 all and realize the" danger of wildfowl being wiped out by careless land use practices both in ao ^ a the northern prairies where Ij0l ,j s iana. ducks and geese breed and in the southern wintering areas. M a n y Arkansas sportsmen have expressed concern for the Cache Eiver bottomland forests and have supported efforts to stop the channelization of that stream. But. too many of us forget that waterfowl must have more protection and more stable conditions on their northern breeding grounds than on their wintering areas if they are to survive. Flooded hardwood forests (with living trees) are the favorite wintering habitat of mallards, but they may survive by wintering in less desirable places. However, the prairie wetlands of the northern midwest and Canada are a delicately balanced ecosystem which cannot be easily replaced if destroyed. There are no alternative breeding grounds WETLANDS PRESERVATION The main' thrust of DU's effort is to see that wetlands in Canada are preserved for the propagation of waterfowl; in recent years this effort has often been thwarted by agricultural activities which require draining' of wetlands. Ducks Unlimited leases land and finances construction of water control structures to insure that adequate wetlands are available and the proceeds go into water fowl preservation programs But government money cannot be spent to save Canadian wetlands. Therefore, the Ducks Unlimited organization is needed, because a large part of the North American continent's waterfowl are produced in Canada. 'Several area businessmen lave donated prizes to be given at the banquet. This means that nany people who attend the anquet will not only be rewarded with the satisfaction of having contributed to a worthy cause but also will take home a prize of sufficient value to more than off set the $25 cost of attending. Actually $20 goes to a year's membership in DU. This only leaves $5.00 to cover the cost of the banquet. At today's restaurant prices that is reasonable. TAX DEDUCTIBLE Because DU is a non-profit organization its membership cost is tax deductible making the whole venture relatively i n e x p e n s i v e . Anyone who seriously hunts ducks is in the labit of spending $5.00 per year for a duck stamp and many more dollars including at least $100 for a shotgun, $100 for boots and clothing, $200 for a duckboat, up to $6,000 for a motor boat and no : telling Buckeyes Are Ranked First; Tech 9th, Hogs 14th, AM 16th And Texas 17th how much for expenses for a trip to a good duck area such as Stuttgart or Cameron in The rationale of habitat protection is easy to understand. Any creature has certain requirements of habitat which cannot be c h a n g e d with anything less than many generations of development. When mankind's actions or any natural phenomenon drastically changes t h e environment, the habitat of a particular crea- iure rrtay be so severely limited that the animal is put in danger of becoming extinct. In the history of our country several creatures are known to have become .extinct. The carrier pigeon is the most famous, example of this and his demise was the result of heavy shooting pressure rather than habitat destruction. Scientists tell us, however, that many more species have been wiped out because their required habitat was destroyed than because of over-hunting. Waterfowl are protected by reasonably well-enforced game laws which are revised each year to allow for only the amount of harvest which the year's production of young birds will tolerate without depleting the overall production.
