We are delighted to mark our centennial with the release of an exquisite set of nature-themed stamps designed by Te Whanganui-a-Tara Wellington wildlife artist Rachel Walker and produced by NZ Post.
The beautiful watercolour artworks represent the four main areas of Forest & Bird’s conservation mahi - terrestrial, freshwater, marine and climate – as well as the efforts of thousands of Forest & Bird members, volunteers and staff over the past century who have worked to preserve our endangered wilderness areas and the critters they're home to.
Each stamp has been designed around particular landscapes and species of significance to Forest & Bird and its membership. With kōkako, gecko, tāiko black petrel, a forest ringlet butterfly and so much more – it’s hard to pick a favourite between Kāpiti Island, the Catlins, the Waitākere Ranges and the Buller Plateau.
It’s been our pleasure to work with NZ Post on this collection and we hope stamp collectors and members of the public love the range – stamps, prints, greeting cards & tea towels - as much as we do. We want anyone who cares about Forest & Bird's important work to be able to join in on the celebrations, whether or not they are stamp collectors.
Stamps begin at $1.70
Tea towels are $10
Prints are $49.90
AND there are even greeting and postcards to choose from!
