UN to Issue New Endangered Species Stamps
Designs Feature Threatened Nocturnal Animals

On 10 October 2013, the United Nations Postal Administration (UNPA) will issue 12 new stamps as part of its long standing Endangered Species series. The images feature nocturnal animals from around the world, including species such as the Pharaoh eagle-owl, Long-beaked echidna, and the Mongoose lemur. In addition to the stamps, the series includes first day covers, maximum cards and the highly anticipated Endangered Species Collection Folder.

To create this year’s edition, UNPA recruited three exceptional natural science illustrators "Fernando J.S. Correia of Portugal, Emily S. Damstra of Canada and Sara Menon of Italy. To learn more about their work, visit http://unstamps.un.org/doc/Publication/bulletin_108.pdf.

“The success of this 21 year philatelic series is a result of the illustrations used to capture the uniqueness of the world’s wild fauna and flora,” noted UNPA stamp designer Sergio Baradat. “The illustrations used in this year’s program continue the tradition of raising awareness by simply revealing the incredible beauty of nature.”

The stamps, issued in US dollars, Swiss francs and Euros, will be sold at United Nations stamp shops in New York, Geneva and Vienna. They can also be purchased at www.unstamps.org, or by calling the New York office at 1-800-234-8672.
