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.

From the wonderful translucent Comb Jelly to the intricate Basket Star, these fascinating creatures will make a wonderful addition to a collection of the stamps of British Antarctic Territory. Grateful thanks are given to Jamie Oliver of the British Antarctic Survey for the provision of photographs and his assistance with this project.
