CHARITY STAMP. WWF. PROTECTION OF NATURE
Once again, Correos is issuing the annual charity stamp, contributing to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Protection of Nature project with an amount equivalent to 3% of the total amount from the stamps sold.
WWF is the main organisation on this stamp and Premium Sheet, and has been working for 50 years to protect nature.
It all began in Spain in the 1960s, when the vice president of WWF, Luc Hoffmann, decided to buy and preserve land in Doñana.
During this process, the Spanish delegation of WWF was created, called ADENA in its early years.
Some years later, Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente was named vice-president, and due to his determination and performance, the organisation grew in terms of members and popularity. For the first time, communication and public awareness campaigns were used, as well as field projects, which represented a breakthrough in this area.
The Club de Linces and camps for young naturalists in Montejo de la Vega emerged under the reign of the great Rodríguez de la Fuente, and they managed to sow the seed of environmental protection among young people across Spain.
There were protection programmes for Iberian wolves, lynxes and birds of prey, which is why we can continue to enjoy this species today, although unfortunately they remain in danger of extinction.
The WWF has carried out many actions over the years to protect nature and is now faced with new and difficult challenges such as the fight against climate change.
The stamp and Premium Sheet illustrate two realities: the end of nature and the future we want. These are represented by two sheets: a faded one and a green one full of life. The logo of the organisation and the 50th anniversary complete the design alongside the slogan “Somos naturaleza” (We are nature).
