Yakutia 24 TV channel: Forest buffalo will be settled across the territory of Suntar district.
The corresponding agreement was signed by the Ministry of Ecology of the Republic, the Directorate of Bioresources, Protected Areas and Natural Parks and the Administration of the Suntar District. The district administration will hand over two batches of 10 forest bison in 2020 and 2023.
10 forest bison calves, born in the conditions of Yakutia have been sent by truck to the Suntarsky district. In 2019, scientists of the Directorate of Bioresources studied and chose a location for the possible production of bisons.
According to the results of the study, the Suntarsky district was chosen as the most suitable place for resettlement of the forest bison. In addition, the district administration built an aviary for overexposure of imported bison, as well as brought fodder and created the necessary conditions for the maintenance of wild animals.
