Matted Print - 8x10 – World Wildlife Fund ("WWF") Print and Stamp - Bowhead Whale (Balaena mysticetus)
This is a beautiful, matted print of the bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) with a mint 35 cent postage stamp from the country of Canada, that also features the bowhead whale.
The bowhead whale (Balaena mysticetus) is in the right whale family Balaenidae, growing to a length of over 60 feet and weighing more than 70 tons. The bowhead whale is the only baleen whale that spends its entire life in Arctic and sub-Arctic waters, and does not migrate to low latitude waters to feed and reproduce, like most baleen whales. It is sometimes called the Greenland right whale or Arctic whale. The bowhead is also know for having the largest mouth of any animal on earth.
Bowhead whale populations were severely reduced by commercial whaling and the bowhead is considered an endangered species under the United States' Endangered Species Act. Since the 1966 moratorium on commercial whaling, only subsistence hunting by North American native peoples is permitted.
This gorgeous WWF wildlife print and Canadian postage stamp are mounted in an 8 inch by 10 inch black mat for easy framing in your favorite 8 inch x 10 inch frame.
The mat is made from acid-free, 4 ply mat board and has the aesthetic and design benefits of a bright white bevel cut.
This beautiful, black matted, WWF wildlife print and Canadian postal stamp include a backing board and are enclosed in a clear bag.

The World Wildlife Fund (“WWF”), is the world’s leading wildlife conservation organization. The WWF’s mission is to conserve nature and build a future in which people live in harmony with nature. The WWF seeks to protect and restore species and their habitats by mobilizing hundreds of millions of people to support wildlife conservation. The WWF works in over a hundred countries throughout the world. It currently has a membership of over a million within the United States and nearly five million globally.
The WWF (also known as the World Wide Fund for Nature, outside of North America) has used the beautiful postage stamps of countries throughout the world to help share its vision. The WWF Conservation Stamp Collection is the largest thematic collection in the world featuring the wildlife of the world. In 1969, France issued the very first stamp featuring the well-known WWF Panda logo. Every month since 1983, a different country has released a new set of WWF postage stamps that feature threatened or endangered wildlife. More than 200 countries have already participated, and now, each year, up to 18 different countries issue new postage stamps featuring their own threatened or endangered animals and the famous WWF Panda logo.
Prince Philips, Duke of Edinburgh and President Emeritus of WWF International, once said ” The WWF Conservation Stamp Collection offers philatelists and people concerned about the state of the natural environment a wonderful opportunity to enhance their stamp collection, while at the same time contributing directly to the conservation of nature”.
