The Bialowieza Forest, Europe’s last primeval woodland, which straddles the border between Poland and Belarus, is home to more than 800 wild European bison (Bison bonasus). Smaller groups of Bison are also present in other parts of Poland and recently several programmes have been established with a view of reintroducing them to forested areas.
