A postage stamp created under the auspices of the European Union of National Post Operators “Post Europe” has been in circulation since October, depicting an endangered Cyprus turpentine tree, Goitered gazelle and bald eagle. The public presentation of the stamp was held in Krtsanisi Forest Park, within the framework of which 150 seedlings of Cyprus turpentine tree were planted, and a photo exhibition organized by “National Geographic” was held.
The presentation was organized by the company “Georgian Post” with the support of the Ministry of Economy and Sustainable Development and the Ministry of Environment and Agriculture, as well as the National Agency for Wildlife.
Guram Guramishvili, Deputy Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development of Georgia, Yuri Nozadze, Deputy Minister of Environment Protection and Agriculture, and Levan Chikvaidze, General Director of JSC Georgian Post also participated in the presentation. Also, Maire Lod, a representative of Post Europe, visited Georgia specifically to participate in this event.
Post Europe has been campaigning for endangered plants since 2012. Information about the Georgian stamp will be spread throughout Europe, as a result, the number of audiences that will receive information about the unique representatives of the flora and fauna in Georgia will increase.
It should be noted that within the presentation, 150 seedings of Cyprus turpentine tree were planted in Krtsanisi Forest Park. As a result, a rare local tree grove will be planted in the area.
The author of the stamp is Giorgi Mamulashvili. The stamp has been in circulation since October this year.
