The southernmost TAAF islands have a biodiversity and geography which in many ways resemble that of Greenland and the Arctic. We at POST Greenland would very much like to celebrate these similarities in a joint issue created by our two minor postal administrations.

Birdlife in the Arctic and the Antarctic is the theme of the joint issue. The Emperor Penguin and South Polar Skua are depicted on the two stamps issued by TAAF, while the Arctic Tern and Sea Eagle are represented on the two stamps by POST Greenland.
