Two groups of back-bred aurochs arrived this morning from the Netherlands at the European Serengeti large herbivore nature reserve, which is located in the former Milovice military training area near Prague. The Dutch Taurus Foundation has selected two young bulls and four young cows to increase the genetic variability of the two herds already living in the nature reserve.

European Wildlife, the conservation organisation behind the large herbivore reserve, has been working with the Taurus Foundation for a long time. The Dutch foundation has been breeding back aurochs since 2008, and sent the first animals to the European Serengeti reserve in 2015, when the reserve, which focuses on key European ungulate species and increasing the biodiversity of the landscape through large herbivores, was established.
