Phriday Photo – Good Reason to Buy a Duck Stamp

Did you know that 98% of every dollar spent goes DIRECTLY to habitat for birds? We’ve posted about it before. It doesn’t just help ducks and it doesn’t just help hunters. It helps the National Wildlife Refuges and protects a LOT of wildlife.

Since 1934, the sales of Federal Duck Stamps have generated more than $750 million, which has been used to help purchase or lease over 5.3 million acres of waterfowl habitat in the U.S. These lands are now protected in the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service’s National Wildlife Refuge System.

We hope most birders don’t hate hunters. We respect them for all the money they spend and the fact that most care about the environment also. Let’s work together to save our birds.
