Save The Stamps -Save The Albatross

\"\"STOURBRIDGE residents in United States are being urged to save the stamps from their Christmas cards, to help save the albatross.

Up to 100,000 of the giant seabirds die each year, with 19 of the 21 species in the world threatened with extinction and the RSPB are appealing for help in getting funds to help save the birds.

Residents are encouraged to save the stamps on envelopes and take them along to the RSPB’s Sandwell Valley or Coombes Valley nature reserve.

The stamps will be sold with every penny raised going towards new equipment for fishing vessels which will help prevent albatross deaths.

Chris Andrews, RSPB visitor and promotions officer, said: \”Christmas is a time for giving. So give a little thought to these wonderful birds and help keep them for generations to come, simply by saving your used stamps.”
