Poles and Glaciers


Hello, I happened to be in a Post Office the other day and saw this cover. Rather nice I thought. Anyone have glaciers as a thematic?

This issue is part of a world-wide initiative involving over 30 national postal administrations. The stamp issue highlights the importance of earth's poles and glaciers and how they are threatened by global warming. Correctly name the two countries that initiated the stamp issue and this cover is yours. Please send email to me at cddstamps@gmail.com and please include your mailing address. First correct answer wins the cover.

Enjoy your stamps .......Michael

Hi,

I have started a blog on this subject which I intend to keep up-dated as much as possible.

I posted a preliminary list of all issuing countries participating in this event.

You are more than welcome to visit and leave your comments.

I apologize if the presentation may look somewhat straggly but I'm fairly new at this.
