Duck Stamps

The 2013-2014 edition of the Federal Duck Stamp features a common goldeneye painted by Robert Steiner of San Francisco.2012federalduckstamp 735px

The $15 stamps may be purchased at post offices, most major sporting goods stores and large chain stores that sell hunting and fishing licenses, at many national wildlife refuges or through the Internet.

All waterfowl hunters in the U.S. are required to purchase a duck stamp each year. Many birders and others interested in supporting conservation also purchase a stamp.

Since 1934 the Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp (commonly called the duck stamp) has provided more than $800 million for American conservation efforts, including purchase of land or easements on more than 6 million acres of wildlife habitat.

The program has annual revenues of about $25 million, 98% of which is used to acquire or lease wildlife habitat.

The stamps may be ordered by visiting www.duckstamp.com or calling (800) 782-6724.

Sales of the Federal Duck Stamps--a program managed by the Fish and Wildlife Service--are vital tools for wetland conservation.  Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System.
