Majel, a four-year-old female Sumatran tiger, licked bone marrow off the back of a replica of a U.S. Postal Service Save Vanishing Species semipostal stamp during a special event this morning at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park.
The Safari Park and the U.S. Postal Service are hosting a two-day special pictorial stamp cancellation opportunity at the Safari Park's Tull Family Tiger Trail on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 20 and 21, promoting the sale of the Save Vanishing Species semipostal tiger stamp.
The cancellation opportunity offers collectors and wildlife enthusiasts the chance to have stamps purchased at the Safari Park marked with a unique postal cancellation that says "San Diego Zoo Safari Park".
All proceeds raised from the sale of the stamps goes to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's Multinational Species Conservation Funds, which support efforts to protect wild populations of tigers, rhinos, elephants, great apes and marine turtles.
Since the stamp's first date of issue in 2011, over 22.5 million Save Vanishing Species semipostal tiger stamps have been sold, raising more than $2.57 million dollars to help wildlife.
