INDIA ~Mudumalai - UNESCO~

Today I received this great elephant postcard...It is so important that sanctuaries as Mudumalai exist to protect this amazing animal...
...But the cards looks as if before sending an elephant has trapped on it! :D:D...Don't mind I still like it... Thanks Nagi!

With nice stamps: Personalities Series-Veenai Dhanammal (Issued 3-12-2010) and Lakshmipat Singhania-Buisness Man (Issued 15-11-2010)
The Western Ghats mountain chain is older than the Himalayas and is recognised as one of the world's eight 'hottest hotspots' of biological diversity. Its high mountain forests influence the Indian monsoon weather system and for this reason the Western Ghats are home to many species of wildlife that are not found anywhere else in the world, including at least 325 globally threatened flora, fauna, bird, amphibian, reptile and fish species.

The Mudumalai National Park and Wildlife Sanctuary lies on the northwestern side of the Nilgiri Hills (Blue Mountains). Mudumalai, which means 'first hills’, is one of the first wildlife sanctuaries established in India. The park is most famous for its elephant population of around 950 to 1,000 elephants.
