The New Mexico Wilderness Alliance selected New Mexico artist Virginia Maria Romero to design the first Conservation Wolf Stamp sold in the United States.  The Mexican wolf is the most endangered wolf in the world, with a total population of less than 50 in the wild in 2009.

The Mexican Wolf Stamp is a conservation project created by the New Mexico Wilderness Alliance.  The concept is similar to the Duck Stamp sold by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, except no hunting will be related to the sale of the Mexican Wolf Stamp.  Instead it will raise money for the conservation of the Mexican wolf by funding projects in the U.S. and Mexico for Mexican Wolf Recovery.  Stamps can be ordered online at https://app.etapestry.com/cart/NewMexicoWildernessAlliance/default/item.php?ref=1435.0.144180261
