New stamp issue dedicated to penguins

The five species of breeding penguins in the Falkland Islands will soon be winging their way through letter boxes, appearing on a new issue of postage stamps – Breeding Penguins – which were released this week by the Falkland Islands Post Office.

The colorful set of six stamps comprises head profiles of each type of the five breeding penguins found in the Falklands – Magellanic, rockhopper, macaroni, king and gentoo. An unusual picture of the rare albino rockhopper penguin is also featured.
