50th anniversary of the foundation of our association –
On the occasion of our 50th anniversary, the Austrian post presented on November, 11, 2007, a stamp with the picture of a spinecheek anemonefish- also known as Nemo- and real sand from our tower. In addition, Ferrytells published a very nice book with 3D pictures from our ocean animal-life. "Nemo" is one of the species we are successfully re-breeding! The stamp’s print run is 120.000 pieces! In the re-constructed entrance hall, there will be a special post office as well as an exhibition of the Associations of Philatelists. Of course there is also a special "First-day-offprint" of our stamp!
The Haus des Meeres wants to thank hereby the Austrian Post and especially Dr. Haas who planned and realized the project. By this, he met my 25-years lasting efforts.
