Since 1934, more than 135 million Federal Duck Stamps have been purchased. These purchases have generated almost $1 billion for the Migratory Bird Conservation Fund, and have been used to purchase close to 6 million acres of habitat. 

I am buying my new one as starting in July 1st, it gives "free" admission to any National Wildlife Refuge that collects a fee.
