Falkland Islands (2009)
11th June, 2010. Stanley

Thanks for James this albatross postcard from Falkland Islands, he made a request to the philatelic bureau couple of months ago and it turned back a while. The postcard featuring a set of albatross which issued on 2009 and one of stamp, Black-browed Albatross has been shown here. These four species are quite commonly to be found in the Falkland Islands, Argentina, Chile, South Africa and most area of South Atlantic and Southern Ocean. However as the irresponsible fishing methods in recent years, population of the most species of albatross family is decreasing and facing extinct.
