Royal Mail celebrates the successful reintroduction of six UK species into their former habitats, paying tribute to the expertise of conservationists and scientists who are helping to reverse the loss of our native plants and animals.

Six new stamps featuring the work of wildlife artist Tanya Lock spotlight formerly extinct species which can now once more call the UK their home:

  • Osprey
  • Large Blue Butterfly
  • Eurasian Beaver
  • Pool Frog
  • Stinking Hawk’s-beard
  • Sand Lizard

With the exception of the large Blue Butterfly, this is the first time that these species have been featured on British stamps; the Blue Butterfly was part of a 2008 Endangered Species: Insects issue.
