Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp Program
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 theFederal Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp.
A highly successful program
The stamp program is one of the most successful conservation initiatives ever. 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.
