Indonesia: Taka Bonerate National Park

Yesterday I got five postcards: one from Indonesia, three from Germany and one from Japan.

The card from Indonesia shows various views of the Taka Bonerate National Park. The Taka Bonerate National Park is a marine national park south of Sulawesi Island. It is home to 15 islands and to the third largest atoll in the World. The national park was established in 1992. It is a popular place for snorkeling and diving, also because it is considered to contain some of the highest marine biodiversity in the World. It is part of the UNESCO World Network of Biosphere Reserves since 2015 and seeks for the inclusion on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

With a matching stamp:
National Philatelic Exhibition (from set of four) (issued 02-11-2015)
Flora and Fauna - Sea Turtle (from set of two) (issued 05-11-2014)
with First Day Special Postmark

Thank You very much Shinta!
