With over one billion stamps printed, the WWF stamp collection is the largest thematic collection in the world. In its latest WWF issue, Philately Liechtenstein is showing four wildlife species which were long believed to be extinct but have meanwhile settled in the region again: “Beaver” (face value: CHF 0.85), “Lynx” (face value: CHF 1.00), “Wolf” (face value: CHF 1.30) and “Stork” (face value: CHF 1.50).
The beaver found its way back to Liechtenstein in 2008 and has been propagating continually since then. But it finds only few natural areas in the valley where it can build its habitat as it pleases. Lynx were actively reintroduced to Switzerland in 1971 and have been spreading in the Principality since that date. Wolves have been migrating into Switzerland from the south since the 1990s. They live nearby in the Calanda region as well as in other places. In recent years, wolves were seen on four different unconfirmed occasions. Due to the efforts of various organisations, a stork couple made Liechtenstein their home in 2007 – for the first time in over 100 years. In the meantime, Liechtenstein counts sixteen stork nests.
