              Federal and Junior Duck Stamps Debut on June 26

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will host the First Day of Sale for
the
2009-2010 Federal Duck Stamp and Junior Duck Stamp on June 26 at the
Bass
Pro Shops Outdoor World retail store in Nashv`ille, Tennessee. Bass Pro
Shops will also be sponsoring First Day of Sale events at eighteen other
retail stores throughout the country that day.

The 2009-2010 Federal Duck Stamp features a long-tail duck and decoy
painted by wildlife artist Joshua Spies of Watertown, S.D. Last fall, a
panel of five judges chose Spies' art to grace the new Duck Stamp from
among 270 paintings at the Federal Duck Stamp Art Contest in
Bloomington,
Minnesota. The new Junior Duck Stamp, featuring a single wood duck, was
created by Lily Spang, a 16-year-old from Toledo, Ohio.

Spies and Spang will both be on hand at the June 26 ceremony, as will
U.S.
Fish and Wildlife Service Acting Director Rowan Gould, and Bass Pro
Shops
Director of Conservation Martin MacDonald.

"In 1934, an innovative partnership between waterfowl hunters and the
federal government created the Federal Duck Stamp Program to help
provide
funds for waterfowl conservation," said Gould. "A lot has changed since
that time, but this mainstay program continues to succeed thanks to many
dedicated and valued partners - from hunters to stamp collectors to
conservationists, the U.S. Postal Service and private corporations such
as
Bass Pro Shops."

Since the first Federal Duck Stamp sale in 1934, a postmaster has sold
the
very first stamp to the Director of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
Nashville Postmaster Dave Vale will continue this tradition by selling
the
first new Federal Duck Stamp and Junior Duck Stamp to Acting Director
Gould.

All waterfowl hunters age 16 and older are required to purchase and
carry a
current Federal Duck Stamp, but conservationists, birders, stamp
collectors
and others also buy the stamp and support habitat conservation.
Ninety-eight percent of the proceeds from the $15 Duck Stamp go to the
Migratory Bird Conservation Fund, which supports wetlands acquisition
for
the Refuge System.
Since 1934, Federal Duck Stamp sales have raised more than $700 million
to
acquire and protect more than 5.2 million acres of wetlands, including
habitat on hundreds of the 548 national wildlife refuges spread across
all
50 states and U.S. territories. A current Duck Stamp is also good for
free
admission to any refuge open to the public. Refuges offer unparalleled
outdoor recreational opportunities, including hunting, fishing, bird
watching and photography.

First Day cancellations of the stamp will be available at every Bass Pro
Shop hosting an event, and along with other collectible items.  For more
details on collectible items and a list of Bass Pro locations holding
First
Day of Sale events, go to http://www.fws.gov/duckstamps .


The mission of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is working with others
to
conserve, protect and enhance fish, wildlife, plants and their habitats
for
the continuing benefit of the American people. We are both a leader and
trusted partner in fish and wildlife conservation, known for our
scientific
excellence, stewardship of lands and natural resources, dedicated
professionals and commitment to public service. For more information on
