Delta Waterfowl Foundation is a non-profit organization operating in both Canada and in the United States whose mission is to provide knowledge, leaders and science-based solutions that efficiently conserve waterfowl and secure the future for waterfowl hunting.[1]

History

Barringer Slough in Iowa, a remnant of the extensive prairie wetlands that once covered the region.
Barringer Slough in Iowa, a remnant of the extensive prairie wetlands that once covered the region.

In the 1930s James Ford Bell, sportsman and founder of General Mills, purchased 5,000 acres (20 km²) of the Delta Marsh in Manitoba, Canada. For several years Bell hunted waterfowl on the marsh in the fall and raised and released waterfowl in the spring and summer from a privately owned hatchery.

In 1938, Bell approached Aldo Leopold, who is considered to be the father of wildlife management in the United States, about establishing a research station dedicated to waterfowl research at the Delta Marsh as very little was known at that time about waterfowl biology. After some discussion, Aldo Leopold agreed to Bell’s idea and brought in his graduate student Hans Albert Hochbaum from the University of Wisconsin–Madison.

Hochbaum completed his graduate work at the Delta Marsh on canvasback ducks and continued on to become the Scientific Director of the Delta Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Station.

Today

Today Delta Waterfowl Foundation supports graduate research on waterfowl (Master’s degree and Ph.D.) along with other programs focused on waterfowl populations and waterfowl hunting in North America.[citation needed]
