South Africa 2010 International Year of Biodiversity Recycled Paper miniature sheet

Issue date 12 March 2010  

Year 2010 has been chosen by the United Nations to be the Year of Biodiversity. On this occasion, a lot of stamps have been launched by national Post Offices all over the world to celebrate the biodiversity and to encourage the protection of the fauna and flora.

South Africa Post has come out with a Miniature sheet made from recycled paper to encourage the protection of the trees used for making paper.

The stamps picture various animals (and one tree) that can be found in South Africa. Clockwise the species that are represented are:

- Giant African Mantis (Sphodromantis viridis) a species of praying mantis  and Devil fire fish (Pterois miles) also known as the common lionfish

- Black Rhinoceros (Dicero bicornis) with the Red Billed Oxpecker (Buphagus erythrorhynchus)

- Common Chameleon (Chamaeleo chamaeleon) and Argus Reed Frog (Hyperolius argus)

- Lilac-breasted Roller (Coracias caudatus) and African Baobab tree (Adansonia digitata)
