The World Wide Fund for Nature, abbreviated to WWF, works every day to build a future where humans live in harmony with nature. The organization takes concrete action to preserve biodiversity, fight climate change and reduce our environmental footprint.
StampNews.com is glad to introduce to our reader's attention four stamps by Monaco Post devoted to such actual theme as nature protection. The block is being released as a part of a joint stamp issue initiated by PUM and entitled "Fish in the Mediterranean".
The stamps depict the ornate wrasse, Thalassoma pavo, a fish native to the Mediterranean Sea. The males and females of this species have distinct colours. Ornate wrasses live in small groups; a male is often accompanied by a harem of females. The fish changes sex during its lifetime. Normally, when the dominant male dies, the oldest female turns into a male and replaces him at the head of the harem.
