Nature of Nauru

The Pacific Islands Forum (known until 27 October 2000 as the South Pacific Forum) is the key regional political organisation in the Pacific. It brings together at an annual meeting the 16 Heads of Government of the independent and self-governing States of the Pacific Islands region.The first Pacific Islands Forum meeting - attended by the seven founding members, Australia, the Cook Islands, Fiji, Nauru, New Zealand, Tonga and Western Samoa - was held in 1971 in Wellington, New Zealand. The meeting stemmed from a desire by leaders to address common issues from a regional perspective and to give their collective views greater weight in the international community.
To commemorate the 24th South Pacific Forum 1993 which held at Nauru, the Postal Administrative of Nauru have issued the four-block stamp featured the Nauru Island and their flora fauna. The species depicted are sea corals, fishes, sea birds, dolphin, and palm trees.
