Squirrel and Dolphin Self - adhesive strip of 2




Previous | Back | Next 



On September 29, 2011, An Post issued two stamps from its Irish Animals and Marine Life definitive series to issue on a coil. The Irish Animals and Marine Life series illustrates Ireland’s biodiversity from the seabed to the mountain top. Biodiversity is an all-encompassing term used to describe the variety of all life and natural processes on Earth.

The species featured on the stamps are; the Red Squirrel and the Bottlenose Dolphin.

The Red Squirrel has a chestnut coloured upper body with buff to cream underside, noticeable ear tufts and fluffy tail and prefer to reside in woodland that contains a fair proportion of conifer trees.

The Bottlenose Dolphin is typically 2.8-4m in length, extremely active and noted for bow-riding, breaching and somersaulting through the air.

The stamps and first day cover were designed by Zinc Design Consultants. The first day cover features images of a Sea Slug and a Golden Eagle and also shows an example of a coil.
