Emas National Park - Brazil

This card was a surprise from Déa and it made my day because its from a missing brazilian Unesco site, Emas National Park.

The Emas National Park is a national park and a UNESCO World Heritage Sitein the states of Goiás and Mato Grosso do Sul in Brazil.
Emas National Park shows a typical cerrado ecosystem; a treeless savannah with tall termite houses and an interesting amount of wildlife: the giant anteater, the maned wolf, giant armadillo, pampas deer[1] and the namesake greater rhea, among others. Emas National Park also holds a small Jaguar population, perhaps consisting of about 10-12 animals. Only about 40% of the reserve, which covers 1320 square kilometres in total, is good Jaguar habitat. Other larger mammals include puma, ozelot, Brazilian tapir, collared peccary, white-lipped peccary, marsh deer, red brocket, gray brocket, black howler monkey and capybara. - in:
