2012 Limited Edition Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp Released
Second annual commemorative stamp supports Mexican gray wolf conservation

2012 Wolf Stamp copyAlbuquerque, N.M.— February 9, 2012—The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance (NM Wild) just released its 2012 Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp.

“The wolf stamp is designed to build support for wolves by donating directly to smaller groups or individuals that are working to make wolf recovery possible,” said NM Wild Executive Director Stephen Capra. “Our goal is wolves on the ground — healthy and vibrant. The wolf stamp is an important tool in reaching that goal.

The 4.5×5.5 inch full-color commemorative conservation stamp is similar to the Federal Duck Stamp—proceeds from the wolf stamp go into the Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp Fund, administered by NM Wild and distributed through a grant to individuals and organizations working for Mexican gray wolf recovery. This year’s grant recipient is the Mexican conservation group, Naturalia, which recently released several Mexican gray wolves in northern Mexico.

The Mexican gray wolf is the most endangered wolf in the world, with a total population of fewer than 50 in the wild.

The 2012 stamp is the second in a series of framing-quality art prints offered to collectors. This year’s stamp was designed by artist Catherine Howell.

The stamp is available for $20 plus shipping on the NM Wild website: www.nmwild.org. To purchase a wolf stamp, go to Shop, and click Stock up on posters, wolf stamps and more!

Last year’s stamp was designed by New Mexico artist Virginia Maria Romero, with proceeds going to Elke Duerr for her wolf education and outreach efforts.
