Dutch news agency ANP reports:
HAARLEM – Next year, there will be European bison running around in the Kraansvlak, a dune area near Zandvoort [western Netherlands].
A spokesperson for nature organisation ARK has said so.
The two hundred hectare area is property of PWN Water Authority Noord-Holland.
This is an experiment for three years.
The European bison should, among other things, prevent the plant cover of the dunes from becoming too dense.
Rabbits used to do that.
Diseases have much reduced the numbers of rabbits in the dunes.
American bison: here.
