Keywords:Europeanbison, restitution, Białowieża Forest
After First World War bison survived only in few zoos scattered in several European countries. Thanks to an effort taken by scientists, breeders and a bison restitution program run since 1929 by Białowiez˙a National Park, this species become reintroduced. Since 1952 bison are again roaming in the wilderness. Years 1920–1928 were the only gap period of bison presence in Białowiez˙a Forest. This September we celebrate eightieth anniversary of bison restitution program.
