Thank you, Cowgazer! there are now about 1,000 European Bison in Poland and the number is slightly increasing. Most are in the Bialowieza forest, on the border with Belarus, and a few at Wolin, close to Germany. The IUCN has classified the species from endangered to vulnerable, so the trend is positive.

Great to see the population growing from only 12 animals in 1919, they were extinct in UK in the 12th century, but some small herds are held by Zoo's now. Great series and so nice to see them.
