For example, one of the USA’s most recognizable animal stamps you’ll find in the hobby is the Save Vanishing Species stamp. This stamp depicts an illustration of an Amur tiger cub, since tigers are one of the world’s most well-known endangered mammals.

Conservation Animal Postage Stamps

The Save Vanishing Species stamp was first issued in September of 2011. Upon purchase, the proceeds of this animal postage stamp goes to fund the conservation efforts of several animal species, including the African elephant, Asian elephant, great apes like the gorilla, orangutan, chimpanzee, and bonobos, the white rhinoceros, marine turtles, and several species of tiger.

The Amur tiger cub illustrated on the stamp represents just one of six tiger subspecies that remain in the wild. These subspecies have a conservation status of threatened, with each currently listed as either endangered or critically endangered. The Amur (or Siberian tiger), Indian (or Bengal tiger), South China tiger, Malayan tiger, Indo-Chinese tiger, and Sumatran tiger are the only tiger species still living in the wild. The Bali, Caspian, and Javan tiger subspecies have sadly become extinct during the 1940s (Bali tiger), 1970s (Caspian tiger) and 1980s (Javan tiger). The Amur/Siberian tiger is the largest of all the tiger species, making it the largest cat on our planet.
