The stamps sell for $5 online at www.ca.wildlifelicense.com/internetsales/. Proceeds from stamp sales fund equipment and training for California’s wildlife officers and provide funding for special law enforcement programs, including CDFW’s K-9 program.

“From catching poachers to stopping polluters, wildlife officers put their lives on the line every day to protect California’s natural resources,” said Chief David Bess of CDFW’s Law Enforcement Division. “Displaying the warden stamp shows your commitment to conservation and ending poaching in California.”

The 2017 stamp is the eighth to be issued since the program was established in 2010. Previous years’ stamps may also be purchased online.
