Rezervatia Narurala "Valea Zimbrului"

Rezervatia Narurala “Valea Zimbrului”

We call them zimbri, which in English goes like aurochs or bison bonasus, a name for european bison having a smaller and higher head than the North American bison. The picture is taken in 2009 at “Valea Zimbrului” ( Aurochs Valley) State Park, I hope this is the translation for a place/reservation which is held and protected by law.

Rezervatia Naturala “Valea Zimbrului” was opened in November 2008 and hosts 22 bison bonasus on a field with grass of 12 ha and 80 ha of forest. The main purpose of our authorities is to set them free to repopulate the Carpathian Mountains. Until then, this rare species can be admired daily with less than a dollar.

Location: Satul Acris, Comuna Vama Buzaului, Judetul Brasov, Romania.
