Re-authorize the Save Vanishing Species Stamp to protect endangered wildlife
Senator Tom Carper: Reauthorize the Save Vanishing Species Stamp today! Tucked away, somewhere in the continental U.S., 77 million stamps are nearly forgotten. These stamps are neither defective nor offensive. On the contrary, they had sold well and successfully funded $2.5 million for international conservation efforts. Through its proceeds, the Save Vanishing Species Stamp supports efforts to protect endangered tigers, African and Asian elephants, rhinos, great apes and marine turtles. However, the stamps are no longer available, and, much like the species they’re meant to aid, the stamps are at risk of being lost forever. There is no hidden controversy behind the stamps. There is no uproar about its image: actually, it's quite beautiful. In fact, there has been no justifiable reason why the Save Vanishing Species Stamp is, in and of itself, endangered. Help us re-authorize the Save Vanishing Species Stamp by contacting Senator Carper and signing this petition today! What is the Save Vanishing Species Stamp? The Save Vanishing Species Stamp provides crucial funding to support endangered species, without any impact to the federal budget. Instead, citizens have voluntarily purchased more than 25 million stamps in less than 2 years, providing almost $2.5M to support projects by the US Fish and Wildlife Service for tigers, elephants, rhinos, great apes, and marine turtles. These funds finance the hiring and training of anti-poaching units, provide logistical and technical aid to protected area managers, and educate targeted groups on natural resource extraction and prevention of wildlife crimes. The support this stamp has received so far serves as a testament to just how much the American public cares about saving species threatened with extinction. Additionally, this is bipartisan, does NOT utilize any tax dollars, and puts much-needed funds in the hands of those who are best qualified to address this crisis. Help us spread the message and save these iconic species. Signing this petition is a simple way to voice your opinion, but you could always go further.
