Speaking at a Capitol Hill briefing in Washington D.C., Katie Frohardt (Executive Director of Fauna & Flora International United States) praised the Save Vanishing Species U.S. postage stamps, which have raised over US$2.18 million for conservation since 2011 thanks to the generosity of the American public.
Funds raised through the sale of these special stamps are transferred to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to support conservation of critically endangered species such as mountain gorillas and Asian elephants.
In the US, we maximize our impact by focusing on a subset of endangered species and habitat protection initiatives globally. We work in an integrated way to improve both conservation status and livelihoods of local communities – these are our Flagships.
