Wolf Management Stamps

Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks (FWP) has proposed a new “Wolf Management Stamp.” The original intent of the stamp is to offer a way for people to contribute financially to the conservation and protection of Montana’s wolves. Currently wolf management and conservation is funded almost exclusively by the sale of hunting, trapping, and fishing licenses, which means hunters and anglers are shaping wildlife management philosophy. Should the “Wolf Stamp” become available, it will offer an opportunity for anyone, including non-hunters, recreationists, conservationists and any of the general public to have a say in wolf management policy.

This sounds like a step in the right direction. You can comment here (deadline is Aug. 22nd) and offer your support for the program as well as encourage transparency as to how the funds are spent and ensure that they are being used for their intended purposes.
