Marine Biodiversity Stamps of British Antarctic Territory
This exciting new set, issued as a set of four stamps and a souvenir sheet, illustrate some of the many weird and wonderful creatures that can be found in the waters around Antarctica. The sheer range of colours, sizes and shapes opens up a whole new window on the marine biodiversity of the area.
