There is a world somewhere between reality and fiction. Although ignored by many, it is very real and so are those living in it. This forum is about the natural world. Here, wild animals will be heard and respected. The forum offers a glimpse into an unknown world as well as a room with a view on the present and the future. Anyone able to speak on behalf of those living in the emerald forest and the deep blue sea is invited to join.

Population of wisents in Europe already surpassed 4000. Their strongholds are Poland and Belarus. Wisent is the largest wild animal in the continent with weight up to 1,2 tons.

So awesome and archaic beast, had read somewhere that they were natural hybrids between steppe bison and aurochs.  Thanks for sharing this quality documentary.

These beasts were contemporary to mammoths and whooly rhinos. Once almost extinct now they make remarkable return in many parts of Europe. With wisents European nature again revive its monumental ancient features.

Notice: brown bear, wolf, European bison, wild boar. Its almost mega-fauna.... Human population of the Eastern part of the continent is decreasing and wild animals are returning.

@Wolverine :

About #4: I would really believe to the full restoration of the European fauna only when the natural predators and only them (lynx, bears, Wolves and so on...) will regulate the herbivores populations. If they were always regulated by the human specy, it would be only a step forward, but incomplete.

In French, as concerns the natural reintroduction of the wolves, you are still hearing the hunters claming to be both the best ecologists and predators of the wild fauna. No use to say it's an absurdity. Positions and views are blocked.

The quality of the movies you share about the wisents is very good. Thank you !
