European bison restitution breeding center of the Białowieża National Park in the years 1929–1952 , or about the return of the king of the forest to the motherland
Keywords:wisent, history of breeding and restitution, Białowieża National Park
The idea of reintroducing the European bison to the Białowieska Forest originated in the early 1920s in hunting circles that were at the same time fascinated by the protection of native wildlife. One idea, behind which was the state apparatus of the “young Poland”, was the creation of a state representative hunting ground in the Białowieska Forest. The other, behind which stood the Polish Hunting Association in Poznań, was the desire to lease a part of the forest and save the European bison within the framework of a hunting company, founded and financed by private persons.
