Did you know that there is a simple and concrete way for you to help support the conservation of elephants, rhinos, great apes, tigers, marine turtles, and tortoises and freshwater turtles around the world? By purchasing the Save Vanishing Species Stamp, nicknamed the "Tiger Stamp," Americans have raised more than $7.6 million, supporting more than 150 projects around the world and contributing directly to the conservation of some of the most beloved endangered species on Earth.

The Tiger Stamp, featuring an Amur Tiger cub by artist Nancy Stahl, was launched in 2011 and represents the first stamp in the history of the U.S. Postal Service to raise funds for international conservation. The price of the stamp marginally exceeds the cost of first class postage. A portion of the proceeds of each Tiger Stamp goes directly to conserving endangered species around the world.
