2001 Endangered Species
The ninth installment of the Endangered Species series, which began in 1993, was issued February 1, 2001. These 12 stamps feature an international array of flora and fauna whose existence is threatened.
The F.s. 0,90 stamps show the North American lynx, the green peafowl, the Galapagos giant tortoise, and the sportive lemur. The Galapagos giant tortoise has a range limited to a tiny island. Predators, including man, threaten its existence.
