Iceland: Surtsey

This is my 100th UNESCO World Heritage Site. Thank You everybody having helped me to achieve this aim!

Today I got three postcards: one from Iceland, one from Spain and one from China.

The card from Iceland shows the island Surtsey. Surtsey is located off the South Coast of Iceland and is the southernmost point of Iceland. Surtsey was created by a submarine eruption having started in 1963. Surtsey is protected since its birth and produces unique long-term information on the colonisation process of new land by plants and animals without human interference. Since 2008 has been Surtsey an UNESCO World Heritage Site.
