Don’t Let Ducks Go Homeless Due to Climate Change

Target: L. David Glatt, Director of the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality

Goal: Protect the Prairie Pothole Region from climate change.

North Dakota’s Prairie Pothole Region, often referred to as the “duck factory” of North America, is in peril. Habitat loss, pollution, and climate change are eroding this unique landscape, which serves as a vital breeding ground for waterfowl and other wildlife. The clock is ticking, and the need for action is urgent.

This region is not just a haven for ducks; it’s a complex ecosystem that supports a wide range of flora and fauna. Moreover, it plays a significant role in water filtration and flood control, benefiting both nature and human communities.

Sign the petition to compel the North Dakota Department of Environmental Quality to enact immediate and effective conservation measures for the Prairie Pothole Region. Essential actions should include habitat restoration, pollution control, and community education about the importance of this unique area.


Dear Director L. David Glatt,

North Dakota’s Prairie Pothole Region is at a critical juncture. This unique landscape, crucial for waterfowl breeding, is facing an onslaught of threats from habitat destruction to pollution. The facts are undeniable: declining bird populations, compromised water quality, and increased vulnerability to flooding.

We insist on immediate, impactful action. A comprehensive conservation strategy must be developed and executed without delay. This plan should focus on habitat restoration, stringent pollution control, and community involvement in safeguarding this irreplaceable region.

The stakes are high. The Prairie Pothole Region is not merely a collection of wetlands; it’s a cornerstone of North Dakota’s natural heritage and ecological balance.

Act with the urgency this critical situation demands. Put into motion plans that will not only halt the current degradation but also ensure the long-term health and resilience of North Dakota’s Prairie Pothole Region.
