WWF Walia Ibex

1990 Ethiopia Complete Mint Set of 4

The critically endangered Walia Ibex is found in the mountains of Ethiopia, where it grazes on low-growing vegetation. Once common, only about 500 survive today. 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. (#1303-06)
