After 15,000 years, European bison return to long-lost habitat in the Cantabrian mountains

After 15,000 years, European bison return to long-lost habitat in the Cantabrian mountains

Riano, April 27, 2017 – Today four European bison and five water buffaloes were released in a new wildlife reserve situated in the Anciles Valley near the village of Riaño, Leon province, Spain. The new reserve, a spectacular landscape set in the Cantabrian Mountains, is located close to the Picos de Europa National Park and just 120 km from the famous caves of Altamira, where in the Late Pleistocene, 15,000 years ago, prehistoric people left stunning images of European bison. Therefore, the bison returns home to its natural habitat.
