Since 1 December 2011 the latest set of stamps issued by the private German postal service provider ‘Nordkurier’ is on the market. For the series the theme ‘50 Years Ueckermünde Zoo’ has been chosen. The stamps are dedicated to the fiftieth anniversary of the zoo, which is to be celebrated in 2012. The zoo can be found at the borders of the Szczecin Lagoon. ‘Nordkurier’ and the animal park have already been partners for a number of years.

The stamps show four species of domestic animals; they have been designed professionally by the graphic designer Andreas Meenke of Neubrandenburg. The stamps are available in all ‘Nordkurier’ branches and also in the animal park Ueckermünde. Especially for collectors there is a special First Day Cover available, as well as a decorative souvenir sheet.
