1. NT$15 stamp: Forests can protect the soil and conserve water sources thereby reducing global warming. The stamp, therefore, depicts a luxuriant green tree as a symbol of healthy ecology on land. Thanks to this protection all kinds of creatures flourish and the earth is full of organic life. 2. NT$32 stamp: The oceans do not only contain rich resources they also serve the important function of regulating the climate. The many hues of coral and sea creatures symbolize how maritime ecology is full of vitality and display the variety of marine life.
