There is established within the "hunters' and anglers' license fund" referred to in R.S.23:3-11 and R.S.23:3-12, a separate and dedicated account to be known as the New Jersey Waterfowl Stamp Account. The New Jersey Waterfowl Stamp Account shall be credited with all revenues received by the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife from the sale of New Jersey Waterfowl Stamps, all revenues received by the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife from the sale of any reproduction, replica, or other utilization of the design of the New Jersey Waterfowl Stamp, and all moneys or property received by the Division of Fish, Game and Wildlife for any purpose enumerated in this section. Moneys in the account shall be utilized by the Commissioner of the Department of Environmental Protection, after consultation with the New Jersey Migratory Waterfowl Advisory Committee, only for funding the acquisition, protection, maintenance, improvement, and enhancement of waterfowl habitat and associated wetlands, including but not limited to wetlands, tributaries, marsh fringe areas, and access sites for public use of waterfowl habitat areas. The Department of Environmental Protection may, upon the recommendation of the New Jersey Migratory Waterfowl Advisory Committee, allocate a percentage of the annual revenue from the New Jersey Waterfowl Stamp Account to qualified nonprofit organizations in North America for utilization in their waterfowl habitat programs, provided that direct benefits to New Jersey waterfowl protection and preservation efforts can be clearly demonstrated. The New Jersey Waterfowl Stamp Account shall be kept separate and apart from all other funds and accounts, and shall be disbursed by the State Treasurer to the Department of Environmental Protection only for the purposes identified in this section.
