"This huge 1.5 million-ha park has successive tiers of vegetation rising from 150 to 4,200 m above sea-level. The tropical forest in the lower tiers is home to an unrivalled variety of animal and plant species. Some 850 species of birds have been identified and rare species such as the giant otter and the giant armadillo also find refuge there. Jaguars are often sighted in the park."

A wonderful postcard showing the map and multi-view of Parque Nacional del Manu - Manu National Park as well as Tambopata National Park of Peru. Thanks so much to Maria of Peru who mailed this postcard inside an envelope. Postmarked October 4, 2013 and arrived in Penang island on October 17, 2013. It is a very special postcard as it is my 900th World Heritage postcard collected. Yippee!
