Thriving jellyfish – the theme of an upcoming stamp issue by Monaco Post

January 26th, 2015 hurries to inform that Monaco Post has prepared for releasing a special stamp release depicting a jellyfish. The issue consists of two stamps that are to be put into circulation on the 25th of February.

Jellyfish are thriving: they are adapting extremely well to marine pollution, benefitting from overfishing and, little by little, conquering the seas. These animals are at the heart of a comprehensive programme led by the Oceanographic Institute, founded by Prince Albert I of Monaco.

The programme includes the publication of a documentary book: Méduses: A la conquête des océans (Jellyfish: Conquering the Oceans), which puts into perspective the declining health of the oceans and the proliferation of jellyfish.
