Folder European bison in the Netherlands
The wisent, also known as the European bison, is the largest living land mammal in Europe. Captive
breeding and reintroduction programmes have saved European bison from extinction, but it is still a vulnerable species. Also the Netherlands is pushing bison conservation, several Dutch organisations are helping the species conservation, and nowadays around 70 bison can be found in Dutch nature. This brochure explains where you can see these awe-inspiring animals.
