Ducks Unlimited does a lot to help the environment, and is more powerful than the WWF, the NWF, and the Audubon Society. The Nature Conservancy, however, trumps it with a billion dollar budget.(Total Revenue of NC =1,017,114,358;Total Revenue of Ducks Unlimited =$210,825,782 ). However, Ducks Unlimited has been around longer, and it has 40,000 volunteers and is supported my hundreds of thousands of loyal sportsmen. As well, its aim has been more targeted--saving ducks--and it has obviously been very successful. But, overall, sportsmen aren't alone in paying for land protection--the Nature Conservancy has protected 119 million acres of land since its founding.
