Bison to lunch in dune reserve

The North-Holland water board is to introduce European bison to the dune reserves north of Zandvoort next year. The board hopes that the animals’ eating habits will help reduce the number of trees and bushes taking over the wild dune habitat. Highland cattle and sheep are already being used to keep the vegetation down.
