One of the newest postage stamps already carries the Egyptian Vulture as its main character. The postage stamp is a key piece of evidence of a country’s history and culture, but also of national identity.
Precisely the Egyptian Vulture represents a symbol of the country’s natural heritage, as the last nesting vulture in Albania, with endangered status.
For this reason, we want this stamp to serve not only Albanian and foreign philatelists to increase their interest in collecting stamps with the Albanian fauna theme, but also for the public to recognize the important species of our biodiversity and take an interest in protecting them.
We thank the Albanian Post, the Ministry of Tourism and the Environment, and the National Agency of Protected Areas for supporting this initiative.
Next time you post a letter, just ask to use the Egyptian Vulture postage stamp, we’re sure they’ll be impressed!
