What are Duck Stamps?

  • Federal Duck Stamps are vital tools for wetland conservation. 
  • Ninety-eight cents out of every dollar generated by the sale of Federal Duck Stamps goes directly to purchase or lease wetland habitat for protection in the National Wildlife Refuge System. 
  • Since 1934, sales of Federal Duck Stamps have generated more than $800 million, which has been used to purchase or lease over 6 million acres of wetlands habitat in the United States. 
  • A current Federal Duck Stamp also serves as an entrance pass for national wildlife refuges where admission is charged.

"Duck Stamps" were originally created in 1934 as federal licenses required for hunting migratory waterfowl.
