About Stamp

Wildlife that was once so abundant to our fore fathers is being depleted at an alarming rate because of its lack of appreciation. It is the Department's hope that the wildlife series of postage stamp issues will emphasize to all Canadians the importance of securing and restoring the wildlife resources of Canada, not only for their considerable economic value but also becaue they are a constant source of pleasure to thousands in every walk of life. The 2¢ postage stamp displaying a Polar Bear was designed by John Crosby, an artist of the National Museum of Canada, Ottawa.
