When publishing magnate and sportsman Joseph P. Knapp first came to Currituck in 1916, he began a love affair with the region. Earley describes how Knapp's love of hunting evolved into a need to conserve waterfowl. He helped form an organization which eventually became Ducks Unlimited, a leading conservation group. Since its founding in 1937, Ducks Unlimited has raised $134 million for waterfowl conservation. Almost $100 million has gone directly to wetland development.
Ducks Unlimited, Inc. was begun at Mackay's Island fifty years ago for the conservation of waterfowl habitat.
For the first time in several years, North Carolina waterfowl hunters will have the opportunity to take canvasback ducks during a special season in coastal waters. Regulations were also adopted allowing hunters to use handguns for big game during the regular gun seasons.
