Hubei Shennongjia

Sometimes postcards arrive in bad shape, sometimes arrive in real bad shape like this first one that even has a stamp on the front of it that should be from another postcard or letter. Fortunetely, most of the postcards arrive in good shape

Located in Hubei Province, in central-eastern China, the site consists of two components: Shennongding/Badong to the west and Laojunshan to the east. It protects the largest primary forests remaining in Central China and provides habitat for many rare animal species, such as the Chinese Giant Salamander, the Golden or Sichuan Snub-nosed Monkey, the Clouded Leopard, Common Leopard and the Asian Black Bear.
