More information about the World Wildife Fund First Day Covers
These covers were issued by the World Wildlife Fund as part of its fund raising and for each issuance there are four covers to a set with each cover bearing one stamp.
This format has been consistently maintained throughout the series even though the stamps themselves may have been issued in se tenant strips or blocks, or part of a larger set, or part of a Miniature Sheet.
The illustrations are of a high quality complementing the respective stamp subject.
