New stamps to help endangered animals
In checking out the International Fund for Animal Welfare website for the previous post concerning the evacuation of animals in Japan, I found a bit of new about a great new postage stamp series.
The new 55-cent stamps will go on sale in September and all net proceeds will go to the Multinational Species Conservation Fund (MSCF). The United States Fish and Wildlife Service program “allocates grants for on-the-ground conservation projects for African and Asian elephants, rhinos, tigers, great apes and marine turtles.”
The IFAW reports the initiatives include environmental education, anti-poaching and park ranger enforcement trainings, wildlife conflict mitigation, species’ habitat protection, and wildlife disease control.
