European bisons (also called the wisent)  is the largest herbivore in Europe and one of the few surviving megafauna species.  The last wild bison in Europe died in Poland in 1919. Thanks to the work of many organisations, zoos and breeding centres, scientists and individuals, the bison is rescued from extinction. The species only survived thanks to 54 animals that were kept in different zoos, originating from only 12 founder animals.
