Without diligent preservation efforts many duck breeds will become only a memory.
Did you know there are duck breeds who number less than 500 in the US?
Some of these breeds are the oldest known breeds and are now so critically rare they need our help to continue thriving. These ducks breeds are diverse in characteristics, traits, and benefits.
By raising, showing, or sponsoring a critically endangered a duck breed, you will be helping to preserve a heritage that has been forged over decades (and even in some cases hundreds of years) for future generations.
Every new duckling brings new hope for these breeds. We need dedicated breeders, exhibitors, and duck enthusiasts. While working to ensure their survival, you just might find they are changing your life for the better, too.
