Abstract

Landlocked Liechtenstein, a Central European nation located in the Alps, is renowned as a winter sport destination. Thus, conservation biologists looked on with interest when, on 7 September 2020, the Principality issued an unusual stamp, as part of the philatelic issues by Liechtensteinische Post AG, the official postal authority of the country (Fig. 1). The stamp draws attention to the dangers posed by plastic pollution on marine life, as highlighted on the cover (Fig. 2), and a marine turtle consuming a piece of plastic is depicted in the maximum card (Fig. 3).
