About the Federal Duck Stamp Program

The Federal Duck Stamp Program has been a keystone of wildlife conservation in the U.S. since its establishment. This essential initiative has played a critical role in preserving millions of acres of wetlands, which are vital habitats for migratory birds and other wildlife. The program is unique in its funding mechanism, where the majority of the revenue from stamp sales directly supports land acquisition and habitat preservation within the National Wildlife Refuge System.

Each year, the program also highlights the importance of wildlife conservation through its renowned art contest. Artists from across the country compete to have their work featured on the stamp, bringing national attention to conservation efforts and showcasing stunning wildlife artwork. The winning designs not only celebrate the beauty of wildlife but also help raise awareness about the need to protect natural habitats.

Purchasing a Federal Duck Stamp is more than a requirement for hunters; it is a direct contribution to conservation efforts. The program also supports recreational activities such as bird watching, hiking, and photography in the protected areas.
