Postcard from Saba

Saba is a Caribbean island which is the smallest special municipality of the Netherlands, and part of Caribbean Netherlands together with Bonaire and Sint Eustatius. It consists largely of the potentially active volcano Mount Scenery, at 887 meters the highest point of the entire Netherlands. The vegetation of Saba is mainly composed of woodland forest with ferns and damp soil, and many mango trees. Visitors refer to Saba's forests as "the Elfin Forest" because of its high altitude mist, and mossy appearance. A woodland reserve was created and named "Elfin Forest Reserve". Saba's lush plant and animal wildlife is diverse and is cared for by the Saba Conservation Foundation.

Stamp on postcard is Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis), issued on 10.11.2014.

Thank you Wolfgang!
