Federal Waterfowl Stamp

The purchase of a Federal Duck Stamp provides an opportunity for every United States citizen to take a stand in the preservation of our natural heritage. All of us, working together, can and have made a difference.

Buy a Duck Stamp 

In 1934, with the passage of the Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act, an increasingly concerned Nation took firm action to stop the destruction of migratory waterfowl and the wetlands so vital to their survival. Under this Act, all waterfowl hunters 16 years of age and over, must annually purchase and carry a Federal Duck Stamp.

Approximately 98 cents of every duck stamp dollar goes directly into the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund to purchase wetlands and wildlife habitat for inclusion into the National Wildlife Refuge System – a fact that ensures this land will be protected and available for future generations.

‘There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot. Like winds and sunset, wild things were taken for granted until progress began to do away with them.’ -Aldo Leopold
