At the southern end of the Carpathian Mountains in Romania, an initiative is underway to create one of Europe’s largest wilderness landscapes south of the Arctic Circle.
In the Carpathian Mountains, a wildlife reintroduction is transforming the land and making Europe’s untamed heart, even wilder. The European bison, which once teetered on the brink of extinction, now thrive in the Southern Carpathians. Herds reshape the landscape, calves are born wild, predator and prey alike benefit. Together these creatures are reviving the Carpathian Mountains, making one of the wildest places on the continent even wilder.
