Just in time for Discovery Channel’s “Shark Week”, Canada Post has unveiled 5 new stamps celebrating sharks found in Canadian waters. There are almost 30 shark species that visit or live near our shores.
While the blue shark, basking shark and the Greenland shark are indigenous to Canadian waters, the mako and great white are visitors.
The five stamps, designed by Andrew Perro and illustrated by Julius Csotonyi, were unveiled at the Vancouver Aquarium. They are available in a booklet of 10, as a souvenir sheet of all five stamps, and a dramatic 25-stamp uncut press sheet.
