2008 CANADIAN WILDLIFE HABITAT CONSERVATION STAMP
2008 CANADIAN WILDLIFE HABITAT CONSERVATION STAMP

Painting by Quebec artist Patricia Pepin,
Titled
"Lily Pond – Ruddy Ducks",
selected as the image of the 2008 Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp.

Patricia's career in wildlife art began in 1997 when she saw the "Birds in Art" exhibition in Wisconsin, U.S. She was struck by the quality and diversification that was possible within the animal art genre. One year later, one of her paintings was part of the same exhibition and her career as a wildlife artist has been going forward ever since. Patricia has rightfully earned the recognition of her peers and plans to remain in the heart of the Wildlife Art Movement by continually producing exceptional paintings. Her accomplishments include commissions for the Québec Wildlife Foundation (2000), and the Ontario Federation of Anglers and Hunters. She has also been extensively involved in exhibits throughout Canada and the U.S.
"We are thrilled with Patricia's creation of the 24th Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp," remarked David Brackett, President of Wildlife Habitat Canada. "Patricia has done a wonderful job of portraying Ruddy Ducks in their natural habitat. We are very much looking forward to working with Patricia over the coming year."
The Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp and Print are produced each year through unique partnerships among WHC, the Canadian Wildlife Service of Environment Canada, and Canadian wildlife artists. The conservation stamp is purchased primarily by waterfowl hunters to validate their migratory game bird hunting permits, but it is also sold to print purchasers, stamp collectors, and individuals interested in contributing to conservation, enhancement and restoration of wildlife habitat in Canada. This is the second time that the Canadian Wildlife Habitat Conservation Stamp has been created from a portion of the painting, while the limited edition prints reflect the full piece.
The revenues and royalties from the sale of the conservation stamp and print fund WHC's habitat conservation programs. Over the past 24 years, over $32M in revenue from stamp and print sales have been invested in hundreds of wildlife habitat conservation projects across the country.
WHC is a national non-profit conservation organization dedicated to working with landowners, governments, non-government organizations and industry to conserve, restore and enhance the great variety of wildlife habitats across Canada.
