Who We Are

WAT's trustees are business leaders, conservationists, and experts managing the fiduciary responsibility for Ducks Unlimited's endowment and land holdings, as well as  Wetlands America Trust, one of the nation's largest accredited land trusts. Holding conservation easements on more than 400,000 acres, Wetlands America Trust has flourished as a direct result of the trustees' efforts to leverage their influence and connections to build an impactful, actionable, and sustainable approach to wetlands conservation.
