The Evolution of The American Duck. Episode 2

Ducks Unlimited, Inc – the only international NGO (non-government organization) bringing together conservationists and hunters from three countries: Canada, USA, and Mexico to protect the wetlands and flyways of the North American ducks and geese. And hunting them! Sometimes with the same people and families! A full-cycle duck.

In the following episodes, available on YouTube and Apple Podcasts, PODCAST and Ducks Unlimited brings together three experts on duck evolution, the future of duck progeny, and why have fewer ducks been available per hunter in some of our flyways.

‘Dr. Phil Lavretsky dives into the latest scientific findings on the prevalence of mallard hybridization with black ducks, mottled ducks, Mexican ducks, and what to look for when identifying hybrids. We also learn that rumors of the demise of the American Black Duck due to mallards have been greatly exaggerated. Phil delivers the good news in the field of genetics.
