Use Your Checks and Bring Awareness to Ducks Unlimited

By Alan Plastin

Ducks Unlimited is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to preserving wetlands, water fowl, and habitat preservation. They currently have 775,000 members throughout the United States and Canada.

Ducks Unlimited is committed to preserving wetlands for North America's water fowl through restoration and management. If you belong to this organization, or you just want to help spread awareness of it, then you should certainly think about purchasing and carrying Ducks Unlimited personal bank checks.

On January 29, 1037, Joseph Knapp founded Ducks Unlimited due to a rising concern amongst him and some other similarly minded individuals. They were concerned about the destruction of wetland habitats and how that might impact their hunting of water fowl.

A chapter was started in Canada in 1938 and later other chapters opened in Latin America, Mexico, New Zealand, and Australia.

Just in North America, 11.6 million acres of water fowl habitats has been preserved by Ducks Unlimited. Local governments, individuals, landowners, and corporations partner with the company in order to restore what has already been damaged as well as to prevent further degradation of the habitats. Each year, the organization takes in about $200 million dollars in revenue which is good since 88% of that goes towards habitat conservation.

Ducks Unlimited typically puts its emphasis on science and research. Some of the methods that they employ include acquiring wetlands for preservation, conservation easements, restoring watersheds, educating landowners, restoring grasslands, and replanting forests.

The popular Ducks Unlimited check series contains four individual checks, coordinating address labels, matching contact cards, and a leather checkbook cover embossed with the official Ducks Unlimited logo to protect your newly acquired checks.

The checks themselves contain beautiful images of water fowl in various stages of flight. These images include 2 designs of water fowl in their native wetlands, an image of water fowl flying over a snowy field, and an image of water fowl flying over a quiet farm.

The checkbook cover itself is gender-friendly and neutral. It is brown leather and since it costs less than $20 it is a good way of protecting your newly acquired checks.

Don't let the former high cost of personal bank checks deter from ordering your Ducks Unlimited checks and bringing awareness to the organization. If you purchase your bank checks online at a reputable website you can save as much as 50% off of what you might have paid in the past at your bank.

Another incentive to ordering your checks online is that you will have access to a larger selection of images and designs. You might have settled for a design in the past that you didn't want due to your bank's lack of selection but this doesn't have to be the case anymore.

When you order your checks online, just make sure that you know your routing number and checking account number. Your checks should get to you in about 5 days. - 31490
