New Duck Stamp Envelope Sold For Gulf Conservation

The Interior Department is selling a new duck stamp envelope to raise money for conservation in the aftermath of the Gulf oil spill according to the Associated Press.
The new duck stamp envelopes were unveiled Tuesday. They feature a silk rendering of a photograph of St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge on the Gulf Coast of Florida, as well as the 2010-2011 federal duck stamp.

They sell for $25 $10 more than a duck stamp alone. The extra $10 will be used to buy land for national wildlife refuges on the Gulf Coast.

All migratory bird hunters must buy a duck stamp along with state licenses and permits.

This year's stamp shows an American wigeon painted by artist Robert Bealle of Waldorf, Md.
