Siberian Crane National Stamp Published in Iran

A set of four stamps, each with a different image of the Siberian Crane, were recently published in Iran. The Iranian National Coordination Unit of the SCWP, together with the National Post Office, developed the stamps with financial assistance from World Wildlife Fund (WWF). The stamps were designed to raise public awareness of the Siberian Crane and the importance of wetland conservation within the country.

In addition, as part of their awareness raising program, the Iranian NCU translated "The Lily of Birds," a booklet on the conservation history of the Siberian Crane, into Farsi, which was recently printed in a national newspaper.
