Vol. 43, No. 3
Keeping your Migratory Bird Stamp in your pocket or your wallet is not sufficient. You should display your conservation action so that others—birders, photographers, hunters, and other outdoor enthusiasts—are inspired and challenged to do likewise. Some creative birders will slap their stamp right on their binocular barrel; some will stick it on the cover of their favorite field guide; others will have the stamp in a special plastic holder for their binocular strap, their field pack, or their jacket zipper-pull.
You can display your support for the stamp program by wearing a t-shirt with a reproduction of the 2014-15 stamp. For details see: tinyurl.com/duckstamptshirt.
Right now, with every $15 stamp you buy, you can claim to have helped secure 725 square feet of crucial bird habitat for the National Wildlife Refuge System. To accentuate the significance of your conservation contribution, you can download a free Certificate of Conservation, one to which you can attach a valid $15 stamp and show off your role in preserving those 725 square feet at: tinyurl.com/duckstampcertificate.
