New stamps honor endangered species in all 50 states

The United States Postal Service (USPS) announced Monday it will release almost two dozen stamps decorated with endangered species that call the U.S. or one of its territories home.

The new postage pane will be released sometime next year—the USPS has yet to release an exact date—to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the signing of the Endangered Species Act, the landmark piece of legislation that established protections for threatened animal and plant life.

Under the Endangered Species Act, more than 1,300 at-risk plant and animal species are protected in order to increase their chances of survival.
