Aurochs come back to Belarus under rewilding project

Aurochs have been returned to Belarus as part of the initiative to restore biodiversity of floodplain meadows in Zhitkovichi District.

The initiative has been implemented since 2017 in line with the UNDP project. Fifteen bulls of the Heck cattle breed were brought to the floodplain meadows of the Pogost natural area (the Srednyaya Pripyat nature reserve) from the Latvian national park Kemeri.
