New stamps from Malaysia



Pos Malaysia, in collaboration with WWF-Malaysia to raise awareness on Malaysia’s endangered big cats, introduced a new stamp collection of its theme.


The new collection featured four stamp designs of Malayan tiger (Panthera tigris jacksoni), leopard(Panthera pardus), Sunda clouded leopard (Neofelis diardi) and clouded leopard (Neofelis nebulosa) which are considered the most endangered species of wild cats in Peninsula Malaysia and Sabah and Sarawak.

As this is the first time Pos Malaysia is issuing this kind of theme, the stamps will inspire the public to get involved in efforts to address the conservation needs of not only big cats but other endangered animal species in Malaysia,” said Pos Malaysia stamp and philatelic division head Yasmin Ramli.
