MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The Department of Fish and Wildlife is urging people to support bird conservation by purchasing a Vermont Habitat Stamp.

Biologist Paul Hamelin says the stamp proceeds help conserve publicly-owned wildlife management areas, some of the best places in Vermont for birds to feed and nest.

Conserving the areas helps provide birds with a place to call home, and provides people with great opportunities to see birds in the wild.

As an example he says the Dead Creek Wildlife Management Area in Addison is one of the state’s most popular sites for birders, who come to see more than 200 species of birds.

The actual ‘stamp’ comes either printed on the license of hunters and anglers who purchase it, or it comes as a bumper sticker mailed to people who donate.
