Brown Bear, Białowieża Forest - BELARUS - UNESCO #33
The Białowieża Primeval Forest in Belarus and Poland (UNESCO WHS since 1979) is the last remaining primary deciduous and mixed forest of the European lowlands. The postcard collection entitled "Fauna of Belarus" shows some of the animals that live there. I already have the Lynx and now I've got this badass looking Brown Bear, I wonder if I can get them all? Thank you very much, I really apreciate the fact that you've used the Belarus special edition "Happy Postcrossing 2014" stamp. This postcard took 8 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.
