Re: Some pictures from last year...

Hopefully we will get warm summers and supermild winters the coming years. Then that P. canariensis will grow fast into a nice tree!

But one day you will get a cold winter vissiting again, then how to protect it.

A Musa sikkimensis would be tempting to plant there.

Beavers in Scotland.

It seems Scotland gets allready a growing population of beavers. In the river ay there seems to be a healthy beaver population, started from escaped animals. Hopefully its the Eurpean beaver and not the non native American one. And the strange thing is that some local people believe that beavers wou...

Re: European bison in the wild in The Netherlands.

Thats the point I want to make here. Bringing back extinct plants and animals and restoring ecosystems is an ethical thing to my opinion. And when we want to save rhinos and tigers in other parts of the World, we in the rich part of the World should give a good example with our own nature and wildli...

Re: European bison released into the wild in Germany.

Well they are wild in the sence that they have been reintroduced. Like the Prizwalki horse in Mongolia. And they are still pure the wild species. The reintroduction in new areas of their former range is also a way to protect the species.

European bison released into the wild in Germany.

Germany has since April 2013 a wild herd of European bisons in the Rothaar Mountains. Those majestic animals get more and more reintroduced in their former range! The Rothaar Mountains are certainly not a primeval forest, far from that. Its also an experiment to see how these animals can live freely...
