March 15, 2016, Albuquerque, N.M.—The 2016 Mexican Wolf Conservation stamp just released by the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance features artwork by Jacob Tarazoff.

With a passion for the wild and pursuit for adventure, Jacob is a 33 year old painter who works with a limited palette, primarily painting en plein aire (outside) and alla prima (wet into wet, one sitting).

“My current focus is on the idea of landscape, as a living memory. It is my aim to present an homage exalting the elemental natural processes that have shaped not only the earth, but also our own biological and sociocultural selves,” explained the artist.

The Mexican gray wolf is the most endangered wolf in the world, with a wild population of only 97 in the Southwest. All proceeds from sales of the wolf stamp directly benefit activities to support Mexican wolf conservation and education projects. This year’s stamp is the sixth in a limited-edition series.

“We are pleased to continue the program this year to support protection of our endangered Mexican wolf. We are grateful to the many talented artists and conservationists who submitted artwork for the stamp’s contest; they truly make this program possible,” said Tisha Broska, Associate Director of the Wilderness Alliance.

The 2016 Mexican Wolf Conservation Stamp is not a true postage stamp. The 4.5- by 5.5-inch full-color commemorative stamp is part of a series of framing-quality art prints offered to collectors.

The stamp is available for $20 at www.nmwild.org. To purchase a wolf stamp, go to Shop, where you will find the entire collection of stamps.
