Wild Animals - Sunday Stamps

Africa has many of the world's most impressive animals. These two, endangered by poachers and the ivory trade, are unmistakable. 

South Africa - Rhino & Elephant
This antelope appears on an environmental conservation stamp.

Republic of South Africa - Damaliscus dorcas
A much smaller antelope with a charming name appears on my fourth and final stamp today.

South West Africa - Kirk's Dik-Dik
I was surprised at how many stamps I had to meet this week's wild animal theme. Please check out those chosen by others at Viridian's Sunday-stamps-135.

African nations have such a variety of animals to choose from for their stamps.

These are a lovely stamps and a great reminder of the need to protect and conserve the wildlife they portray.

The dik dik, with its big eyes looks almost alien. Ok watching too many movies!
Thank you for participating. Maybe we can have this theme again in a while.

I like the wildlife art on the dik-dik stamp.

South Africa's wildlife is so much more exotic.

Africa is of course, the perfect place to see wildlife animals.

You always provide me with memories, if it is not from the North West, it is from my years in Africa :0)
