Lynx, Białowieża Forest - BELARUS - UNESCO #33
This goodloking wildcat posing for the picture lives in the Białowieża Primeval Forest in Belarus, the last remaining primary deciduous and mixed forest of the European lowlands. In Portugal we have a program to reintroduce the Lynx in the wild on "Serra da Malcata", right here on my region... hopefully soon we'll have them hunting in the woods. Thank you very much Igor for this lovely card. As for my collection, I now have 210 sites, only 771 to finish. This postcard took 25 days to arrive!
Situated on the watershed of the Baltic Sea and the Black Sea, this immense forest range, consisting of evergreens and broad-leaved trees, is home to some remarkable animal life, including rare mammals such as the wolf, the lynx and the otter, as well as some 300 European Bison, a species which has been reintroduced into the park.
