WWF Fijian Monkey-faced Bat

1997 Fiji Complete Mint Set of 4

The Fijian Monkey-Faced Bat was discovered only in 1976 and is Fiji’s only endangered species.  This extremely rare large bat is found only on a single mountain in Fiji, with a population of less than 1000. 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.
