Concerned with accuracy as well as artistry, the U.S. Postal Service consulted with experts at the National Aquarium in Baltimore during the development of these stamps. They made sure that Teresa Fasolino’s panoramic design included appropriate creatures —as well as the equipment vital to keeping them healthy.
