Area: Bialowieza Primeval Forest, Bialowieza National Park, NE Poland

Bialowieza Forest is the last stronghold of primeval temperate forest in Europe. Large fragments consist of very old trees, lots of fallen trunks, covered with fungi and mosses. The forest is rich in wildlife including big predators such as lynx and wolf. European bison is the emblem of the area – the species which became extinct in the wild and was restored from the individuals kept in captivity with the help of scientists and conservationists. Old trees are a good habitat for hole-dwelling bird species, e.g. woodpeckers (three-toed, white-backed) and flycatchers, there are also interesting owl species here, such as: pygmy owl, tengmalm’s owl and eagle owl.
