The Korea Forest Service is implementing a pilot REDD+ project in Cambodia. Short for `reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation plus,` REDD+ is a framework with the objective of mitigating climate change through reducing net emissions of greenhouse gases through enhanced forest management in developing countries. Such activities to protect forests have been able to not only reduce greenhouse gas, but also generate non-carbon benefits including conservation of biodiversity. Korea Post is issuing a commemorative stamps featuring four endangered species designated by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) in recognition of the conservation efforts. Indochinese lutung (Trachypithecus germaini) is a lutung native to Thailand, Burma, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. The face, which has dark grey skin, is framed with impressively long pale hairs, which form a marked crest on the crown. While infants have orange fur, they they gradually come to have the same color as older juveniles in just three to five months after birth. Their hands, feet and tails are black at the top and fades into paler grey on the underparts. Sunda pangolin (Manis javanica) is a species of pangolin that has a flexible dermal armor consisting of sharp overlapping keratinous scales. It has been classified as critically endangered on the IUCN Red List as it is at the brink of extinction. While it has poor eyesight, it boasts a highly developed auditory and olfactory senses. Owston`s palm civet (Chrotogale owstoni) is a civet native to Vietnam, Laos, and southern China. With its pointed face, it is sometimes thought to resemble a large insectivore. It is estimated that the number of Owston`s palm civets has reduced by over 30% since about 15 years ago due to overexploitation, habitat destruction, and pollution. It has a tawny buff-grey body with highly contrasted black markings on its back and tail. Pileated gibbon (Hylobates pileatus) is an anthropoid primate that has sexual dimorphism in fur coloration: males have a purely black fur, while the females have a white-grey colored fur with only the belly and head black. The white and often shaggy hair ring around the head is common to both sexes. They spend most of their time on trees and rarely come down to the ground. They also use their long arms to easily move between trees that are even 10 meters apart. Each stamp features a pair of these endangered species ensconced in a tropical forest. We hope that this commemorative stamps serve as an opportunity to remind you of the great importance of both habitat and wildlife conservation.
