The three stamps on top and the bottom right one are part of the “Marine Life” set, which was issued on January 3, 2012. They depict the hawksbill sea turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata), the Christmas tree worm (Spirobranchus giganteus), the purple sea fan (Gorgonia ventalina), and the red cushion seastar (Oreaster reticulatus).

The bottom left stamp is part of the set, which commemorates the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing. The bottom middle stamp depicts the butterfly zebra longwing (Heliconius charithonia).
