Stamp Collecting Month (SCM) is all about engaging middle to upper primary school students (and their teachers) with interesting themes, presented through stamps. This website explores a range of topics related to wildlife conservation and our Wildlife Recovery stamp issue. It also contains videos, fun activities, teaching resources and more.

Explore six of the listed species identified for immediate conservation management and that feature on our stamps.

Lesson plans for teachers

This year each school and classroom has adapted to a blended learning approach. Our teacher guides have been tailored to suit both the classroom and home learning environments. Our SCM resources include fun and engaging activities that focus on discovering more about the factors that lead to animal endangerment and what can be done to help animals recover.
