General Description : From the 10 stamps booklet

They’re wild, rugged, breathtakingly beautiful and a fascinating portal to the past – and not just because Canadians think so. These treasures of Canada have become UNESCO World Heritage sites and are celebrated in this multi-year stamp series, which will include both definitive and commemorative stamps.
Canada’s 17 World Heritage sites are deemed so valuable for their natural riches and cultural significance that they are recognized internationally. We introduce the series with five domestic stamps.
The pristine ridges and cliffs, bogs and tundra, ocean inlets and lakes of Gros Morne National Park (Newfoundland and Labrador) might be stunning, but this site’s World Heritage status was granted due to what’s hidden underground – a perfect example of plate tectonics, proof the Earth’s continents have joined and separated repeatedly over the eons. Once-liquid magma that filled the gap between plates of Earth’s crust remains clearly visible in the cliffs of Gros Morne’s Western Brook Pond.
