The first two stamps in this row from Palau's Envionmental Heroes of the 20th Century series honor musicians: Sting (Gordon Sumner) and Paul Winter. Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, founded the Rainforest Foundation International.
Paul Winter's jazz music incorporates the sounds of nature, and emphasizes environmental themes. This is illustrated on the stamp by a howling wolf.
The next-to-last design depicts landscape architect and planner and author Ian McHarg (1920 - 2001). In his influential 1969 book, Design with Nature, he wrote that ecological considerations should determine architectural decisions.
The final design features Earth Day founder Denis Hayes.
