Graced with an abundance of life, nature stamps are some of the most popular issuances in the American commemorative program. These stamps regularly showcase the plants and animals of various states and regions, commemorate the creation of vital wildlife refuges, and raise awareness about the importance of protecting endangered species.

The U.S. Postal Service is honored to feature artwork by some of our country’s most talented wildlife artists. Passionate about every detail, these artists discover new elements of beauty in the natural world, offering perspectives that even the best photographers cannot capture. Sometimes they even provide glimpses of idealized scenes, an approach that makes these stamps as enlightening as they are exquisite.
