2012 Delaware 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 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!
