When the explorers first set foot upon the continent of North America, the skies and marshes and lands teemed with an astonishing variety of wildlife. Beginning with those early settlers and continuing today, the vast majority of our natural wetlands have been drained dry, filled in and paved over in the name of development. These are lands used as breeding and feeding grounds for migratory waterfowl and all other wildlife that depend on these nutrient rich areas for their very survival.

These lands also act as filtering systems for water runoff, sending fresh, clean waters into our cities' watersheds. And these lands help to store flood waters. An amazing stamp is helping to turn the tide in the battle to preserve the remaining wetlands - The Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamp - better known as The Duck Stamp. This stamp is not used for postage, it is instead a revenue stamp. The monies earned from the sale of The Duck Stamp are earmarked to purchase wetlands and waterfowl.
