HAWAII (HawaiiNewsNow) - The state Department of Land and Natural Resources has announced two winners in its Hawaii Wildlife Conservation and Game Bird Stamp Art Contest.

The conservation stamp is required to be on the Hawaii hunting license, and the game bird stamp must be present for those intending to hunt game birds.

The winners in the competition were James E. Basham for his conservation stamp submission and Alvin V. Galvez for the game bird stamp.

Basham's stamp depicted a young boar in a puddle of water, and Galvez's stamp shows a wild male turkey on the foggy slopes of Mauna Kea.

Wildlife stamp collectors can get the stamps by calling 808-587-0166 or by visiting the Division of Wildlife and Forestry office.

Funds from stamp sales go toward a state fund that supports wildlife populations and manages hunting in the state.
