As a great fan of engraved stamps, I wondered how many engraved WWF stamps were issued. Looking in my engraved stamps album, I can find only one set issued by Czechoslovakia. I searched the web and eBay and I was surprise to learn there are few engraved WWF stamps like France (first WWF stamp in world, 1969) and Greenland. I sure there are others but not many although hundreds of different WWF set of stamps were issued since 1969.

Here is the only engraved WWF set I have, issued by Czechoslovakia on July 18, 1989 depicting endangered amphibians, designed by Radana Podzemna Hamsikova.

2K. European Fire-bellied Toad (Bombina bombina), engraved by M. Srb
3K. Yellow-bellied Toad (Bombina variegata), engraved by Bedrich Housa
4K. Alpine newt (Triturus alpestris), engraved by Bohumil Sneider
5K. Montadon's newt (Triturus montandoni), engraved by Milos Ondracek

I absolutely adore those Czech stamps,
from when I first spied them 20 years ago.

As a youth, I collected Newts, had a bath in the back garden
with 10-20 Newts. Rocks plants, the whole shebang. Just loved them.

What a lovely sentiment, Eli.
May we respect all sentient beings, I rescued a bee, the other day
it was struggling on the lawn, so I gave it a teaspoon of honey,
and away it went 5 mins later.

I would find it hard, to live without space, a gift that Australia
(used to) offer as a premium.
My Bee hotel, resident frogs, Kookaburras in the trees
sometimes hand feed my Magpies. Resident stumpy tailed lizard.
