The Federal Junior Duck Stamp Conservation and Design Program is a dynamic art- and science-based curriculum that teaches wetland and waterfowl conservation to students in kindergarten through high school. The program began in 1989 as an extension of the Migratory Bird Conservation and Hunting Stamp, commonly known as the Federal Duck Stamp and encourages students to explore their natural world, invites them to investigate biology and wildlife management principles, and challenges them to express and share what they have learned with others.
The winning artwork from a national art contest serves as the design for the Junior Duck Stamp, which the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service produces annually. This $5 stamp has become a much sought after collector’s item. One hundred percent of the revenue from the sale of Junior Duck stamps goes to support recognition and environmental education activities for students who participate in the program.
The Jr. Duck Stamp purchased from the ABA has a moisture-sensitive adhesive on the reverse.
DISCLAIMER: The ABA is NOT responsible for replacing Ducks Stamps if they get lost in the mail if you pick the First Class Mail Large Envelope option to ship. The duck stamps are on consignment and ABA is responsible for the entire $5 once it leaves our hands. We recommend you pay to ship your duck stamp by Priority Mail which includes tracking and carries up to $50 insurance in case of USPS losses.
