HELP ALL OF THE BIRDS
WHEN YOU BUY A DUCK STAMP
What's one of the quickest, easiest, and most
effective ways to help secure the future of the birds you enjoy watching? Buy a
Federal Duck Stamp!
Proceeds from Duck Stamp sales go directly to
conservation of priority wetlands and other habitats around the country. If you have
ever listened to Yellow Rails calling from the shallow marshes at Michigan's Seney
National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), or viewed the Sandhill Cranes at Bosque del Apache NWR in
New Mexico, or watched northbound warblers dancing through the treetops at Forsythe NWR in
New Jersey, you probably have stood on land that was purchased through revenue from the
Waterfowl hunters must buy Duck Stamps.
Birders should buy them because funds generated by Duck Stamps sales are used to conserve
critical and dwindling habitat for waterfowl and a host of shorebirds, raptors, and
songbirds. The Duck Stamp is one of the most efficient and effective ways to help
conserve birds, with $.98 cents of every dollar going directly to habitat conservation!
And birds are not the only ones to
benefit. With a Duck Stamp in hand, you are admitted free to all National Wildlife
Refuges that require an entrance fee. Do your share--buy a Federal Duck Stamp today.
(They also make great gifts for your birding buddies!)
