The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is pleased to offer a limited edition of the first Conservation Wolf Stamp sold in the United States.
The Mexican Gray Wolf is the most endangered wolf in the world, with a total population of less than 50 in the wild in 2009.
The Conservation Wolf Stamp is a project created by the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance. The concept is similar to the Duck Stamp sold by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, except no hunting will be related to the sale of the Wolf Stamp. Instead, proceeds will be used for a Conservation Wolf Stamp Fund, administered by NMWA and distributed to organizations and individuals working for Mexican Gray Wolf recovery. NMWA awarded its first Conservation Wolf Stamp Grant in November 2010, to conservationist Elke Duerr for her Wild Wolf Film project. READ THE PRESS RELEASE here.
The cost is $20 (+$2 for S/H) for a 3×5 inch stamp, designed by New Mexico artist Virginia Maria Romero.
