A flagship species returns to the Carpathians
Iconic wildlife is coming back to the heart of the Carpathian Mountains. Bison have disappeared from the wild in Romania 200 years ago, but WWF, Rewilding Europe and the Bison Hillock Association (AMZA) and Armenis City Hall are working together to bring them back in the Țarcu Mountains.
The European bison is an umbrella species, a missing link in the trophic chain, with a real impact on maintaining ecological processes that are specific to wilderness areas. Visit the Bison Hillock to find out more about these animals that used to roam freely in forests across Europe in herds of thousands. We recommend that you experience nature conservation at its grass roots, by booking a guided tour to the Bison Hillock.
