David Brakhage (’81) leads Ducks Unlimited’s region


Nov. 15, 2014 – David Brakhage (’81 B.S. forestry and wildlife) has been named director of operations for Ducks Unlimited’s Great Lakes and Atlantic Region. In this new role, he oversees all aspects of Ducks Unlimited’s work in the region’s 21 states — from Maine south to Maryland, west to Missouri, and north to Minnesota — including habitat conservation, research, and public policy.

Brakhage spent the first half of his conservation career working for the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission, starting as a waterfowl biologist. He moved to Ducks Unlimited in 1998 and has spent his tenure developing important partnerships with state wildlife agencies and organizations that match well with DU’s waterfowl habitat goals.

“I am really looking forward to this new role with Ducks Unlimited,” Brakhage said. “This region holds important breeding, wintering and migration habitat for waterfowl, as well as significant human resources. As we move into the next era of conservation, it will be important for us to engage stakeholders, providing them with the best science and a road map for efficient and impactful waterfowl habitat restoration and enhancement.”
