About Youth Care Stamps: The Ocean
With the release of this youth stamp-issue Cpost International wants to create more awareness of the wonderful Oceans and its many amazing inhabitants. Oceans are the lifeblood of planet Earth and humankind. They flow over nearly three quarters of our planet, and hold 97% of the planet’s water. They produce more than half of the oxygen in the atmosphere, and absorb the most carbon from it. The sheer number of people who use and depend on the ocean, and the sometimes unwise practices we adopt, have created problems such as overharvest of resources, reduction in biodiversity, and degradation of marine habitats and species, among others. We risk the very ecosystems on which our survival depends. We owe it to ourselves and to future generations to become better stewards of our oceans.Each stamp has an illustration of an underwater scene with the spotlight on a particular underwater creature.

This issue consists of 6 stamps.The design is colorful and very attractive for children.

100c Sea Turtle

119C Fish

177c Octopus

305c Dolphin

500c Crab

Imagine what it would be like to live under water. It would certainly be a unique and different place to be. The soft filtered light, the spectacular sea creatures, the lovely cool temperatures and the immense silence is surely an amazing experience.
