Ducks Unlimited (DU) and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service have completed a wetland restoration and enhancement project on the 300-acre Middleton Unit – the Anahuac National Wildlife Refuge in Anahuac, Texas.
“The Gulf Coast is one of the most important areas for waterfowl on the continent and its habitats are in jeopardy from coastal land loss, saltwater intrusion and land use changes,” said DU CEO Dale Hall.
“Axalta’s support for DU’s Gulf Coast Initiative provides better habitat for waterfowl and other wetland-dependent wildlife, increases coastal resiliency by enhancing coastal wetlands and improves outdoor recreation opportunities for people.”
Working with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, Ducks Unlimited added water control infrastructure to facilitate better habitat management and promote waterfowl use on this public-access refuge outside of Houston.
