Winner of 75th Anniversary Federal Duck Stamp Contest Named -- (Learn more . . . )
In 1934, Jay Norwood “Ding” Darling had an idea – create a revenue stamp purchased by hunters, and use the proceeds to buy disappearing habitat for waterfowl and other wildlife. With the support of sportsmen, the Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp was born.
More than $700 million and 5.2 million acres later, the “Federal Duck Stamp” has funded the world’s most successful conservation program.
Today, the Federal Duck Stamp contest is America’s oldest and most prestigious wildlife art contest. And its not just for hunters.
In honor of its founder, the 2007 contest to select the 75th Federal Duck Stamp is coming to J.N. “Ding” Darling National Wildlife Refuge and Sanibel, Florida. The contest will be held in conjunction with the annual J.N. “Ding” Darling Days.
