wild-bisons-winterVanatori Natural Park from Neamt County is the place where you’ll also find “Dragos Voda” Bison and Carpathian Wildlife Reserve. Here there are 30 bison protected by law: 6 of them can be visited in the reservation, where you can also see other animals specific to the Moldavia area and the rest of 24 are in an acclimatization pen that stretches for over 180 ha in Vanatori Neamt.

In January 2011, two bison cubs were born here, which is considered to be an anomaly by specialists. They believe that captive animals manifest different behaviors and this is the reason for this event in January. Because of the fact that the two cubs were born inside the reservation, following an international convention, their names start with the prefix of the country. That is why the two cubs are named Robobi (the male) and Roana (the female).

These two cubs are now the main attraction of Vanatori Park and more visitors are coming here to see them. The animals can be seen only in the presence of their caregivers, inside the acclimatization pen that is located near the Administration of Vanatori Natural Park, where they live with the other 22 bison in semi-wild conditions.

In a 3 years period of time, with funds from the European Fund for Regional Development, there is a project that has the objective to ensure a healthy environment where the bison could evolve in natural conditions.
Starting with this year, the administration of Vanatori Park will release a group of 5 bison in an area from Cracau Valley, at 5 km from the last human settlement. This is a total premiere for Romania where no bison had lived in the wild for more than two centuries.
