Land and Sea

Netherlands NL-1305495 received 07-14-2012

Sent by: ZijVerstuurt
From: Enschede, Netherlands
ID number: NL-1305495
Notes: This card seems to be made to benefit the Friends of the Blijdorp Zoo.  According to their website, the Friends of the Zoo have paid for new enclosures for polar bears, tigers, elephants, gorillas and Amur leopards.  I believe the beautiful cat on this card is a young Amur leopard.  The back of the card was not only signed by ZijVerstuurt, but also six other Postcrossers that attended a meet-up.

Notes: This is also a charity card.  In this case, it benefited the Defenders of Wildlife, who were trying to keep the dolphins safe from tuna nets.  Jen said that bottlenose dolphins like the one shown here are a common sight where she lives.
