A Polish stamp featuring the Eurasian lynx has won the gold medal in the EUROPA 2021 competition for the most beautiful postage stamp, the Polish Post announced on Friday.
VIDEO: The litter now brings the number of cubs born in North-west Poland to 14, a record year since the conservation programme began with the release of adult Lynx into the wild in 2016.
Created for the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), Jan Kallwejt’s striking poster features a lynx and its cub in the forefront, with a forest behind it. The rest of the poster shows various threats to the lynx, from hunters between the trees to the destruction of its natural habitant by deforestation and road construction. Tree stumps show where trees have been cut down.
A photo trap caught the Eurasian lynx family playing around on the Carpathians mountain range, the first time the animals have been filmed in the region.
