Habitat stamps

Habitat stamps

Two dollars from each annual game-bird hunting licence goes to a fund which aims to restore and protect game birds’ habitat. The fund also receives the proceeds from sales of limited-edition artists’ prints and first-day covers. This 2007 stamp shows brown quail in a forest area.
