So far I know about only few of it: Unfortunately not every post authority publish their programs online and quite some who publish it not update it yet. In case you know/have any stamp issue plan not mentioned or outdated here: please share it with me.

By looking in stamp issue programs of international post authorities the following feature issues found:

15.02.2109 - Latvia - Unique exhibits of the Latvian Natural History Museum (tentative: it is still not clear what will be depicted there)
22.03.2019 - Slovenia - Mammals fossil: Oligocene anthracotherium
05.09.2019 - Germany - 250 anniversary of Alexander von Humbolt - great German naturalist. Some collectors might consider this stamp as Charles Darwin made frequent reference to Humboldt's work in his Voyage of the Beagle, where Darwin described his own scientific exploration of the Americas. Some more details can be found in Wikipedia
xx.xx.2019 - Portugal - ATM stamps "Fossils Discovered in Portugal"

xx.xx.2019 - Ukraine - commemorative cover "100 anniversary of zoological museum in Kiev" (there are big Paleontology exhibition in the museum)

If you know any other please share it with me.
