Animals are Watching Us

france stamp booklets animalsThe stamps are illustrated by the eyes of animals. The intention of this book “Animals are watching” is to interpellate on biodiversity. Animals that have been chosen to illustrate the stamps are not necessarily endangered animals. These expressive looks symbolize all animals threatened with extinction now or not. They refer us to our responsibilities, we wonder about their future and the future of the planet. The Union for the international Conservation updates the  red list of threatened species regularly. Thus, one mammal species in four is now (December 2014) at risk of extinction, one in eight birds, one in three amphibians. France is presiding the Climate Conference (Cop21). This booklet supports the concern for the future of the planet, like the book “Together act for preserving the climate”, issued in 2014, for the week of sustainable development.
