StampNews.com is glad to inform that Jersey Post has prepared for issuing a series of stamps dedicated to its rare species of animals. The series consists of six stamps that feature a Puffin, Agile frog, Red squirrel, Green Lizard, Hedgehog, and a Barn owl. The issue is to be released and put into circulation on the 18th of February.
Jersey is very proud of its rare and varied wildlife and certain species are protected by the Island's Biodiversity Strategy. First published in the year 2000 by the States of Jersey Eco-Active department, the strategy was established after Jersey signed the International Convention on Biological Diversity at the 1992 Rio Earth Summit.
Now focusing on as many as 67 species of animals and plants in Jersey, the department aims to produce local action plans to protect those that are threatened. Six Post & Go stamp labels that will be overprinted with postage on demand feature some of the animal species protected by the Eco-Active campaign.
