3151 FRANCE (Saint Barthélemy) - Islets at sunset

Around the Saint Barthélemy island are several small satellite islets, generally rocky, uninhabited. Some of them are part of a marine nature reserve that covers 1.200 ha, and is divided into 5 zones all around the island to form a network of protected areas, established with the objective of conserving coral reefs, sea grass beds and marine life.

About the stamps
The first two stamps are part of the definitive series depicting Marianne, issued on  July 16, 2014, about which I wrote here. The last stamp is part of the series Arts and Crafts.
