USA: Laysan Ducks

On Wednesday I got three postcards: one from the USA, one from Finland and one from Germany.

The card from the USA shows two Laysan Ducks. The Laysan Duck is a critically endangered duck which only survived on Laysan Island. In 2002 42 ducks were translocated to the Midway Atoll to ensure their future. Both islands are located within the Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument, the second largest protected area in the World. The Papahānaumokuākea is since 2010 on the UNESCO World Heritage List.


Stamps:
Penguins (issued 01-06-2015)
Total Solar Eclipse (issued 20-06-2017)
The stamp changes its colour if you touch it and reveals a picture of the moon.


Thank You very much Judy!
