Parco Natura Viva is involved in the conservation of the European bison by releasing captive born individuals in the wild, in particular in the Carpathian region since 2004.
In the National Park of Poloniny, different studies have been carried out since 2004 to better understand the behaviour and the diet of this large herbivore, in collaboration with Italian universities.
In 2014, an important collaboration with Rewilding Europe was born: two European bisons born in Parco Natura Viva were released in the Tarcu Mountains together with other 15 animals, in order to create a wild herd. The movements of the released bisons are monitored in order to better understand their behaviour.
