TAAF, Dumont d'Urville

The stamps are from last year. They commemorate the 70th anniversary of the formation of the EPF:
Expéditions polaires françaises. It was established in 1947 after Paul-Émile Victor convinced the French government to fund expeditions to Greenland and the Antarctic. The EPF was succeeded by the French Polar Institute Paul-Émile Victor, IPEV, in 1992.
