Wild bison are returning to the UK after 6,000 years

Wild bison are returning to the UK after nearly six thousand years.
A small herd of endangered species will release in Kent in the spring of 2022. In addition to the £1.1 million “Wilder Blean” project to protect the endangered species, a natural pine forest will create in the UK. This will create an environment for birds and wildlife through the creation of mixed forests.
According to a report in The Guardian, after the initial release of one male and three female bison, the herd will be raised through natural reproduction. Bison usually give birth to a baby once a year. These bison will bring from the Netherlands or Poland. These two countries have already survived after the bison released into the wild.
The number of important wildlife in the UK has dropped by an average of 60 percent since the 1970s. Despite various conservation efforts, the United Kingdom is the world’s top country in terms of nature destruction.
Paul Hardaway, director of the Kent Wildlife Trust, said: “The problem we are in now is that the Blean project can be a solution to protecting the climate and nature in a wild and natural way. By conserving species like bison, we are going to start the process of natural conservation.
Bison usually eat the bark of the tree and rub the hair on the tree. When the tree dies, it becomes a habitat for insects. It creates a great environment for birds and other animals.
It creates an ecosystem. “
Bison existed in the United Kingdom six thousand years ago.
Bison later came close to extinction due to hunting and habitat changes. The European bison is a close relative of that bison.
