Issued on October 2 at the San Diego Zoo in California, this endangered species souvenir sheet kicked off National Stamp Collecting Month. Using the theme of "Protect and Collect," the Postal Service selected fifteen lovely creatures from America's land, waters, and skies because of their appeal to young people. The Postal Service, staying true to its pledge to educate through stamps, sought to increase the number of young stamp collectors, as well as increase public awareness of all endangered animals.
