Our bisons at the heart of exchange and reintroduction projects

26/11/2012

The Caves of Han Estate actively participates in numerous projects for the conservation of endangered species.

So this September a magnificent European bison from Duisburg Zoo in Germany came to the Reserve. More recently, 2 bison from Berne Zoo were entrusted to us.

They are one male and one female, born in June 2011. These bison are still young and will not reach adult size for several years.

Some of them will be reintroduced to the Highlands of Scotland, where a small herd from our Reserve is already located.

In the context of these exchanges we are collaborating with FLAXFIELD NATURE, our favoured partner.
