The Oryol bison population has grown more than 8.5 times

The press service of the government of the Oryol region reported that the Oryol bison population has reached almost 700 individuals. Among them are more than 70 calves. Over 27 years, the population has grown more than 8.5 times.

The Oryol Polesye National Park is a leader in the resettlement of bison into the wild. In 1994, a program to preserve these animals was launched here. The Oryol bison population is currently one of the largest in the world and the largest in Central Russia.

In Oryol Polesie, conditions have been created for the formation of a stable free population of bison. Here the territory of the South Russian taiga community has been preserved almost in its original form.
