#746 New Caledonia 13/05/21

New Caledonia 130521-2This very nice cover from New Caledonia was sent by Jean Pierre, thank you very much! It was posted in Nouméa on May 21 and arrived on June 3, 2013.

The left stamp (issued on November 8, 2012) commemorates the marine life of the Great South Bay Lagoon. The right stamp (issued March 8, 2013) depicts birds in the zone of the Entrecasteaux reefs, which are located in the northwest of New Caledonia. The reefs became an UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008.
