Guernsey Postage Stamp Features Giant Panda

First Day of Issue: February 20, 2013 - Guernsey

Guernsey has issued a new postage stamp featuring the Giant Panda.

There is only one species of Giant Panda. A member of the bear family, the Giant Panda is the only species in its genus. Restricted and degraded habitat is the greatest threat to Giant Pandas. A further threat to pandas relates to their reliance on bamboo for food.

As China’s economy continues its rapid development, it is more important than ever to conserve the forest home of the Giant Panda.
