European bison helps beetles

This is a video about the Kraansvlak wisent herd.

As this blog blogged earlier, European bison have been introduced to the Kraansvlak nature reserve in the coastal sand dunes in the Netherlands.

The bison like to have sandbaths. That makes for more open sandy spots.

Northern dune tiger beetles benefit from this, as Dutch conservation organization ARK reports.
