The Mexican gray wolf is the most endangered wolf in the world, with a total population of less than 50 in the wild.
To assist Mexican gray wolf recovery efforts, the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance is offering a limited edition of the first Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp sold in the United States. The 2011 wolf stamp pictured here is not a postage stamp, but the first in an annual series of framing-quality art prints offered to collectors.
The Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp is a project similar to the Duck Stamp sold by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, but with no relation to hunting. Proceeds from Wolf Stamp sales are used for a Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp Fund, administered by NM Wild and distributed to organizations and individuals working for Mexican gray wolf recovery. NM Wild awarded its first Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp Fund grant in November 2010, to conservationist Elke Duerr for her Wild Wolf Film project. READ THE PRESS RELEASE here.
NM Wild looks forward to administering further grants, and plans to issue a new wolf stamp each year in this ongoing project to help bring back the Lobo.
