Southern Carpathians: largest reintroduction of bison in Europe

Since 2014, Rewilding Europe together with WWF in Romania has started to reintroduce the European bison into the Țarcu Mountains in the Southern Carpathians. From 2016 onwards, the European Commission has started this spectacular reintroduction initiative under the LIFE Nature programme. With tremendous support of the local communities we are gradually building up the population that is now roaming freely. So far, ## bison have been brought to this area, with many more to follow in the coming four years. Read more on the LIFE Bison page.

Bison breeding

Rewilding Europe and partners are carefully breeding European bison in a number of locations. These breeding locations are all members of the European Rewilding Network. Together with bison originating from European zoos and wildlife parks, these animals are used for the translocations and reintroductions. The main breeding locations are Kraansvlak, Veluwe and Maashorst in the Netherlands, and Studen Kladenetz in Bulgaria. So far, ## calves have been born since 2016.

Bison population management

The European bison that Rewilding Europe and its partners are breeding and reintroducing, are all part of the European Wildlife Bank. By the end of 2017, ## bison are in the bank and ## bison are roaming free in the area, exploring their new home. For this species it is crucially important to select the genetically right animals for the reintroduction programme.
