2013 Delaware Waterfowl (Duck) Stamp
Beginning with black ducks painted by Ned Mayne in 1980, the first year of Delaware’s waterfowl art competition, 33 of the State’s waterfowl species have adorned the annual stamp that is required of waterfowl hunters and prints that are collected by conservationists. The Division of Fish & Wildlife, in partnership with Delaware Ducks Unlimited, began the waterfowl (duck) stamp and print program in 1980 to raise funds for waterfowl conservation, including acquiring and improving the wetland habitats that are vital for the survival of migratory waterfowl. To date, more than $2.5 million has been raised. These funds improve waterfowl habitat in Delaware and Canada. This conservation effort helps to ensure that waterfowl species will prosper and provide enjoyment for generations to come.Thank you for your support!
The 2013 stamp is the fifth in a series that is open to all Delaware native species and can include any other related subject. The 2013 prints and stamps (as well as the 2011 and 2012 stamps and prints) will be available July 1, 2013. After June 30, 2013 the 2010 prints and stamps will be destroyed in accordance with Waterfowl (Duck) Stamp Program policy.
