Special Duck Stamp Package to Fund Gulf Wetlands
~Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar unveiled a special edition Federal Duck Stamp envelope, or cachet, on Tuesday to help fund conservation efforts in the Gulf of Mexico. The cachet can be purchased by hunters, stamp collectors, birders and others for $25—or $10 more than the cost of a regular Duck Stamp. The funds will be used to acquire wetlands for inclusion in national wildlife refuges along the oil-soaked Gulf Coast. (Click pic to enlarge)
