Stamp Collecting Month 2010 is focused on wildlife caring, introducing children to the important work that an army of volunteers undertake everyday. The release of this Australian issue coincides with Wildlife Awareness Month, which aims to raise public consciousness of wildlife rescue and rehabilitation.
Stamp Collecting Month is all about encouraging children to enjoy the fun of collecting stamps. The message about protecting native animals is conveyed not only through the stamps but also through a miniature sheet. The issue is accompanied by a decorative gutter (with a hidden animal included in the design) showing the animals in their natural environments and by a limited-edition medallion cover (10,000) featuring the Koala.
