World Wildlife Fund Postage Stamps Celebrating 50th Anniversary Released

The UK's Royal Mail issued a total of 14 stamps to mark the anniversary of the foundation of the WWF. 2011 is the UN Year of Forests, and forests are the Post Europ theme and we will be celebrating this through a separate four-stamp miniature sheet that looks at the species of the Amazon Rain Forest.

Created in 1961, the World Wildlife Fund, as it was then known, was formed by a group of eminent wildlife experts who launched the conservation organisation to tackle environmental problems across the world.
