Auckland, New Zealand--(Newsfile Corp. - June 10, 2021) - Ducks Unlimited Canada is the latest global conservation organisation to partner with Metalbird, the outdoor bird sculpture company dedicated to supporting real birds in the wild.

They've designed a metal version of Canada's iconic Mallard duck and 20% of all the new Metalbird Mallards sold will go to Ducks Unlimited Canada to support their work.

The Mallard is the ancestor of most of the world's domestic duck breeds and like other wetland birds, continues to see its precious habitats being lost. Ducks Unlimited Canada has been working to conserve waterfowl habitats for over 80 years - restoring wetlands that have been lost, fighting invasive species and sharing research and knowledge with other organisations.

Given their ambitious mission, strong values and long history of success, Ducks Unlimited Canada was the perfect partner for Metalbird.

"We were blown away by the impact this organization has had. Since 1938 they've completed more than 11,299 projects and conserved and influenced more than 197 million acres of habitat across Canada," says Metalbird creator, Phil Walters.

"We're honored to be working, in one small way, to help them continue to have an impact."

ABOUT METALBIRD

Metalbird grew from a personal street art project started in 2009 by industrial designer, Phil Walters. He created and installed metal bird silhouettes around his neighborhood just for fun. People loved them, wanted their own birds. 10 years later Metalbird is a worldwide phenomenon and a global art project. With the simple tap of a hammer, these beautifully-crafted, life-like bird silhouettes transform backyards into art spaces. Producing locally and ethically is important to Metalbird and the company is currently working with a Canadian factory to put local manufacturing in place. Until that happens, the birds are made in the US and shipped from Montreal.
