20th International Science Conference
100 YEARS OF WISENT RESTITUTION
September 6 – 8, 2023
Centre Borek (near Cracow)
Ladies and Gentlemen,
I have the honor to invite you to the twentieth, jubilee, international meeting dedicated to European bison. This year’s conference will be special.
2023 marks the 100th anniversary of the establishment of the International Society for the Protection of European Bison, an organization that undertook the restitution of a species decimated during the First World War. The activity of the International Society for the Protection of European Bison, including the Polish branch, resulted in the removal of the threat of extinction of the European bison, and after many years it was possible to reintroduce the European bison to the nature. The population of the species is currently 200 times larger thanks to the joint work of many people and institutions.
The European Bison Friends Society became the heir of International Society for the Protection of European Bison.
The conference is organized jointly with the Niepołomice Forest Inspectorate and the Warsaw University of Life Sciences under the honorary patronage of Ministry of Climate and Environment and Director General of State Forests.
We want to enjoy the success, but also start a discussion on what to do next and answer the question of what protection the European bison needs.
I look forward to seeing you there
President of European Bison Friends Society
The conference is held under the honorary patronage
