The Blue Planet II licensed stamp pack celebrates this incredible series from BBC Earth. Blue Planet II uses cutting-edge technology to explore the ocean and the incredible creatures within it.

As well as stunning nature photography, the pack includes 20 Love Heart stamps from the 2017 Special Occasions: Love stamp issue.

In recent years, our knowledge of what goes on in our ocean has been transformed. Blue Planet II uses cutting-edge breakthroughs in science and technology to explore new worlds, reveal astonishing creatures, and extraordinary new animal behaviours. Through this, we now know that ocean health is under threat. Never has there been a more crucial time to explore our remotest seas, and to examine what the future will hold for our blue planet.

TAB 1: Walrus mother and calf resting on an iceberg, Svalbard, Norway. The bond between mother and calf is very strong, reinforced by vocal communication and their strong sense of smell. © Rachel Butler

TAB 2: Surfing Bottlenose Dolphins, Wild Coast, South Africa. Surfing may be a form of play in Bottlenose Dolphins, which is important in developing social and cognitive skills. © Steve Benjamin

TAB 3: Mobula Rays or Devil Rays, Pacific Ocean. Mobula Rays can grow to have a disc of three metres. They feed mainly on Plankton, but for the first time, Blue Planet II filmed them eating fish. © BBC 2017

TAB 4: Aerial view of pod of Sperm Whales. Females live in “nursery schools“, bringing up their calves together in a team effort. © BBC 2017

TAB 5: Killer Whales, northern Norway. Around 1,000 individuals follow the herring migration in the northern Atlantic. They work as a team to corral the herring into tight balls before using powerful tail-slaps to stun the fish. © BBC 2017

TAB 6: A male Weedy Seadragon, carrying fertilised eggs in a special region along its tail. It is very slow moving and relies on its leaf-like appendages which camouflage it beautifully in the kelp and seaweed beds of its home along the southern coast of Australia and around Tasmania. © BBC 2017

TAB 7: The Garibaldi fish carefully removes a sea urchin from its territory. Left alone, the urchin would be a threat to the Garibaldi’s food supply. © BBC 2017

TAB 8: Some of the largest seagrass meadows in the world are found off the coast of Australia, in Shark Bay and the Torres Strait. The meadows are comprised of many species including the seagrass Amphibolis antarctica. More closely related to lilies than terrestrial grasses, they are the only flowering plants to live completely submerged in seawater. © BBC 2017

TAB 10: A Green Turtle swimming over seagrass in tropical waters off Green Island, Australia. Sunlight fuels the growth of lush meadows of seagrass in these shallow waters, on which the turtles graze. © BBC 2017

TAB 11: A cheeky Green Turtle in Sipidan, Borneo, Malaysia. The endangered Green Turtles come to feed in the tropical waters off the oceanic island of Sipidan. As an adult, the Green Turtle is the only strict herbivore of all the sea turtles and has fine serration along its jaw to help it tear algae and sea grass to eat. © BBC 2017

TAB 12: A Broadclub Cuttlefish in Indonesia. Its skin contains millions of pigment cells with which it can create everchanging colours and patterns to apparently mesmerise its prey. © BBC 2017

TAB 13: The Blue Shark, one of the most common open ocean sharks. It travels vast distances, looking for its next meal, but can survive weeks wthout eating. © BBC 2017

TAB 14: A King Penguin picks its way through an obstacle course of Southern Elephant Seals at St Andrew’s Bay, South Georgia Island. © BBC 2017

TAB 15: A superpod of Sperm Whales gathering off the coast of Sri Lanka. Sperm Whales are large, intelligent and sociable whales found around the world. Their numbers plummeted due to commercial whaling, the rare sight of a superpod off Sri Lanka in spring perhaps shows us how the oceans used to look. © Tony Wu

TAB 16: The venomous Portugese Man-of-War is not a jellyfish but a siphonophore, an animal made up of a group of specialised individuals working together. They are also known as the “floating terror“ as they can sail with the wind, trailing tentacles that can paralyse fish and deliver a sting very painful to humans. © Matty Smith

TAB 17: The Flapjack Octopus lives in the deep waters off California. It is a type of Dumbo Octopus, so-named for the fins it uses to move through the water. The name "Dumbo" originates from their resemblance to the title character of Disney's 1941 film Dumbo, having a prominent ear-like fin which extends from the mantle above each eye. This specimen was collected by Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute, California. © BBC 2017

TAB 18: Yellowfin Tuna, Pacific Ocean. These predators only inhabit the open ocean. They pursue their prey at speeds of up to 64 kilometers per hour. These Yellowfin Tuna were filmed using a camera towed behind the boat Aguila in the Pacific Ocean off Costa Rica, while the Blue Planet II team were looking for the “boiling sea“. © BBC 2017

TAB 19: An Orange-Dotted Tuskfish holds a clam in its formidable jaws on the Great Barrier Reef, Australia. These tuskfish are one of the few coral reef fish that use coral outcroppings as a tool. By forcefully smashing the clam on either side of the outcropping, the tuskfish is able to break apart its tough protective shell. © BBC 2017

TAB 20: An octopus traveling overland in search of Sally Lightfoot Crabs. Fernando de Noronha, Brazil. © BBC 2017
