TWS Action Alert: Support the Duck Stamp Bill

The House passed a bill (H.R.5069) in November that would increase the price of Migratory Bird Hunting and Conservation Stamps-better known as Ducks Stamps-from $15 to $25. Duck Stamps are permits required to hunt waterfowl in the United States, and the revenue collected from their sale goes straight to wetland conservation through land purchases and easements. Many National Wildlife Refuges were funded in part or in full by Duck Stamp revenue.
The price of the stamp has remained at $15 since 1991 even though land values have tripled making easement agreements more expensive. The bill is essential for ensuring that an important source of wetland conservation funding continues to be a viable tool.
For the bill to become law, the Senate's version of the bill (S.2621) must be passed. TWS has been working with Congress to promote the Senate bill. Please add your voice to ours in supporting S.2621 by letting your Senators know that Duck Stamps are an essential tool for wetland conservation and this price increase is long overdue.
