How About a No-Hunting Stamp?
I’ve never hid my disdain for how the Duck Stamp skews perceptions of who uses and supports public refuges in the United States. Thankfully, others are challenging the assumptions inherent in this very flawed system. Ingrid Taylar at The Free Quark is in the middle of an astute inquiry into the issue of non-hunters and the NWR system as well as potential alternatives to the status quo. I urge conservation minded readers to engage in a dialog with Ingrid, here on 10,000 Birds, and anywhere else we can get out the message that hunters and anglers aren’t the only supporters of habitat preservation!
