If you hunt in the Dakotas, you know how important wildlife habitat is to your experience and way of life. Today, you can stand up for this region you love and ensure the upland hunters and waterfowlers of tomorrow will enjoy the Dakotas as they should be – full of pheasants and ducks. Hunters and conservationists have a unique opportunity to help channel funding toward conserving wildlife habitat in the Prairie Pothole Region of North and South Dakota and eastern Montana. The Dakota Grassland Conservation Area initiative would increase funding for U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service conservation easements. This would help conserve critical upland and wetland habitat, including:

  • 1.7 million grassland acres
  • 240,000 wetland acres
