GERMANY ~ National Park Harz ~

... A lot of wonderful views from animals and birds living in Harz National Park...a great new postcard for my national parks collection... with matching fauna and flora stamps and special First Day cancellation...Thanks a lot Dustin for this lovely surprise!!♡ (
The Harz National Park is located within Germany's most northerly mountain range. Together with the surrounding Harz Mountains Nature Park and Geopark, it is one of the most popular areas for walking and skiing in northern Germany. The National Park consists of  ± 24,700 ha.

Rare animals of the Harz National Park include the dipper, the black stork, peregrine falcon, the European wildcat and especially the Eurasian lynx. The last lynx in the Harz Mountains had been shot in 1818, but in 1999 a project for reintroducing was established. Since 2002 several wild lynxes gave birth.
