Postage Stamps Featuring Animals

One of the most popular types of postage stamps are those that feature animals. The United States Postal Service has issued many different animal-themed stamps over the years, and they remain some of the most popular among stamp collectors and animal lovers alike. These stamps feature a variety of different animals, from common creatures like birds and squirrels to more exotic animals like tigers and giraffes. The USPS has even released stamps featuring endangered animals, like the bald eagle and the American bison.

While some people may view these animal-themed stamps as simply cute or quirky, they actually serve an important purpose. According to the USPS, these stamps help raise awareness about the importance of conservation and protecting our environment. By featuring different animals on their postage stamps, the USPS is able to educate the public about the need to preserve these creatures and their habitats. Each of these stamps is beautiful in its own way and celebrates the amazing diversity of wildlife found in the United States.
