Supporter Spotlight

Wildlife Habitat Canada

Wildlife Habitat Canada has provided key funding for ALUS over the past several years. Generating funds from Canadian duck hunters that purchase a permit and stamp, this conservation organization has a grant program to distribute these funds to conservation efforts that benefit wildlife habitat.

WHC is celebrating 30 years and has even had artist Robert Bateman paint the inaugural stamp. Please visit their website and consider purchasing a collectable stamp today.
