Since the 1930s, the Federal Duck Stamps have contributed over $850 million and have helped to protect 5.5 million acres of habitat for wildlife and future generations. Buying the stamp is perhaps the single simplest thing individuals can do to support a legacy of wetland and grassland conservation for birds. Virtually all the stamp proceeds ($.98 of every $1) go to help secure valuable Refuge System habitats.
We feel strongly that every birder should purchase a Duck Stamp: 1) to support this important habitat conservation program 2) to provide proof that birders voluntarily purchase this stamp in order to support the resource
The Duck Stamp is available for purchase in the Black Swamp Bird Observatory Gift Shop for $25.
