New Stamp Benefits Gorillas, Other Endangered Species

I'm delighted to report that you can now help save gorillas and other endangered species when you buy stamps at the post office or order stamps online!

The "Save Vanishing Species Stamp" went on sale this month, for a price just above the usual cost of postage. The extra proceeds help fund the United States Fish and Wildlife Service's Wildlife Without Borders Multinational Species Conservation Funds. These important funds support conservation efforts that help great apes, elephants, rhinos, tigers and marine turtles survive.

The money raised will be divided equally among the conservation funds to support a wide range of projects. These include community conservation, anti-poaching, outreach and education programs, among others. The Fossey Fund has received critical support through U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services. This is an easy way to give a little more to our cause. The part of the stamp price that goes to the funds is tax-deductible.

For more details and to order these special stamps, go to:
