The Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp, commonly known as the Duck Stamp, has been a crucial tool for wetland habitat conservation since the 1930s. Funds raised from stamp sales go to work in the National Wildlife Refuge System. There are more than 540 units in the NWR System that are being expanded or improved because of the Federal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp.
The stamp program is one of the most successful conservation initiatives ever.
Millions of acres and dollars generated
Since 1934, revenue from stamp sales has totaled over $700 million, and has secured almost six million acres of wetland and grassland habitat for numerous species of birds and wildlife.
