The new stamps include photographs taken by members of the public and National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration employees.

The 16 new stamps include a monk seal, sand tiger shark, humpback whale, and the Farallon Islands. A map of the National Marine Sanctuary System is printed on the back of the pane.

The stamps come in sheets of 16 for $9.60 and pre-orders can be made online at [
