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.
