New Zealand - Ross Dependency - L84-L88

     In 2004 New Zealand issued, for the Ross Dependency, a set of 5 stamps showing the mating cycle of the Emperor Penguin, and across the bottom a small map of a portion of Antarctica. The Ross Ice Shelf is the area at the bottom of the map within the V shaped indentation. The Dependency extends to the Antarctic Pole.
     The penguins are the focus of the set showing the nurturing of the penguin chick by the male adult.
