Hunter and angler groups play a crucial role in funding wildlife conservation in the United States.
In 1934 Jay Norwood "Ding" Darling created the artwork for the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service's new Duck Stamp. President Franklin Roosevelt's Migratory Bird Hunting Stamp Act required anyone older than 16 to have a federal duck stamp affixed to a state hunting license in order to hunt. The first stamps were a dollar and for hunters only; now they cost $15 and raise more than $25 million annually of funds for habitat purchase and restoration.
While created with waterfowl in mind, stamp sale funds benefit all types of species and outdoor enthusiasts.
Through work with the Teaming with Wildlife Coalition, the National Wildlife Federation works with sportsmen and women and other conservation organizations to secure wildlife funding for each state through State Wildlife Action Plans.
