The NATURA 2000 network is a wide European Network of protected natural areas for flora, fauna, birds and habitats.

The aim of the network is to ensure the long-term survival of Europe's most valuable and endangered species and habitats.

The sites for the NATURA 2000 network are selected by the Member States in cooperation with the European Commission.

The selected areas are officially recognized by the committee as "Places of Community Importance". This process confirms the status of the sites and strengthens the obligations of protecting them.

The "Places of Community Importance" together with the "Special Protection Areas" for the birds constitute the NATURA 2000 Network.

24 May 2021 - we still have no news regarding the preliminary stamp issues from north Cyprus.

North Cyprus (Turkish Cypriot) 19 November 2020
North Cyprus Stamps SG 2020 "Anniversaries and Events"
"50th Year of the Social Aid Stamp"
and "COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic"

This issue consists of 2 separate stamps.
Available in sheets of 8 stamps and on a single Post Office Official FDC, featuring the following:

"50th Year of the Social Aid Stamp":
On 23 March 1970, Turkish Communal Chamber, using the authorisation given by the Constitution of the Republic of Cyprus, issued a set of 2 social aid stamps of 5 and 15 mills values. Turkish Postal Administration started to use them on 3 April 1970.
Values were shown with a symbol of a flower at the corner of the stamp.
Each flower leaf denotes 1 mill and were designed by Mr Fikri Direkoğlu.
Although the stamps were meant for funding social aid purposes (such as the construction of a home for the elderly in Gönyeli, or to aid refugees and families of incident victims, those killed or mained during conflict), they were actually used in postal services and on fiscal materials in the Turkish enclaves of the island, supplanting the stamps of the Republic of Cyprus.
In order to avoid interference or confiscation by the Greek Cypriot authorities, cancellations were made not with the normal handstamp but with the straight or zigzag metal bars.
The datestamp of the Republic of Cyprus was applied on a blank space on the envelope. Envelopes bearing those stamps were delivered by means of the taxi and bus companies.

"COVID-19 Coronavirus Pandemic":
COVID-19 is the infectious disease caused by the coronavirus, SARS-CoV-2, which is a respiratory pathogen.
The World first learned of this new virus from cases in Wutan, People's Republic of China on 31 December 2019. Strict precautions were enacted in the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus that represents a "good model" for other countries in the world with regard to dealing with the current COVID-19 pandemic, shortly after the identification of the first positive case of SARS-CoV-2 on 9 March 2020 (a female German tourist who had arrived on 8 March 2020) "Patient Zero".
In addition to the precautions taken, TV channels, universities and associations are continually sharing informative videos and information to increase awareness of the current outbreak and the role of each individual in the country in preventing further transmission.
An emergency hospital that was funded by Turkey, whose construction started in August, is planned to get operational within this month. The hospital has six operation theatres and a 100-bed capacity for intensive care patients.
