NEW YORK – The Save Vanishing Species stamps sold by the US Postal Service are administered by the US Fish and Wildlife Service and provide funding for projects to conserve endangered species in the wild. The Wildlife Trafficking Alliance and Association of Zoos & Aquariums are urging consumers to purchase the stamps for their holiday mailing needs.

Net proceeds from the sale of the stamp, which features an illustration of an Amur tiger cub, directly support efforts to save critically endangered species like rhinos, elephants, tigers, turtles and great apes — at no cost to US taxpayers. To date, 99 projects in 35 countries have been funded to help these beloved but highly threatened species. The stamp is currently on sale nationwide at post offices, and online.

The Wildlife Trafficking Alliance and Association of Zoos & Aquariums hope that significantly increased sales of the stamp during the holiday period will not only raise funds for critical conservation efforts but also encourage Congress to reauthorize the stamp and keep it in circulation.

Auction Central News and its parent company, LiveAuctioneers, are partners with the Wildlife Trafficking Alliance and support their commendable work in protecting and preserving endangered species.
