1983 Palau Complete Mint Set of 4

In 2010, the South Pacific nation of Palau declared all of its waters to be a marine sanctuary for whales and dolphins.  Over 30 species of whales and dolphins have been found in Palau’s waters. The World Wildlife Fund (WWF) is the largest international conservation organization aiding more than 100 countries in wilderness and animal preservation.  The endangered animals featured on each nation's WWF postage stamps are native to that country and provide awareness to help support their conservation efforts.
