China: Chengjiang Biota Museum and Fossil Site

On Tuesday I got four postcards: one from China, two from Germany and one from Belarus.

The card from China shows the Chengjiang Biota Museum and fossils from the Chengjiang Fossil Site. The Chengjiang Fossil Site is one of the earliest records of a complex marine ecosystem and presents the most complete record of an early Cambrian marine community. In 1984 the Chengjiang Biota Museum was founded to exhibit the fossils from the site. Since 2012 is the Chengjiang Fossil Site on the UNESCO World Heritage List.
