The Waterfowl Policy of the Chesapeake Executive Council is 'to restore, protect, and enhance waterfowl populations and their habitats to derive the greatest long-term ecological, economic, and social benefits from the resource.' To achieve the Policy, the Plan defines the resource, life history characteristics, research priorities, and it outlines three major objectives which are: (1) Prevent loss or degradation of habitat, and restore or enhance habitats presently degraded or unsuitable for use by waterfowl; (2) Support responsible waterfowl management programs to restore waterfowl populations and habitats to at least 1970's levels by the year 2000; and (3) Improve public understanding of the waterfowl resource and its habitat needs.
