Glen Rosa, one of the Highland Wildlife Park bison is among the seven females selected for reintroduction in Romania.
In 1927 the European bison became extinct in the wild. Luckily, a number were kept in zoos and a coordinated approach to their management was started in 1932, with the first captive-bred bison reintroduced back into the wild in 1952. Reintroductions continue and in 2012, the total wild population had risen to over 3,000. The bison is not out of the woods yet, but work is continuing to save this magnificent beast for future generations.
(No pics on the net definitely of Glen Rosa, but I found this nice one of an un-named mother and calf)
