Ust-Buotama Bisonarium

Bisonarium is a nursery established in 2006 with the purpose of increasing the population of bison that are currently listed in the International Red Book.

In 2006, 30 forest bison donated by the Government of Canada were imported from Elk Island Nature Reserve. Now in Yakutia there are already more than 120 forest bison, this proves that they are fully adapted to the Yakut conditions.

When visiting the bisonarium, you will be accompanied by its employee, who will tell you the rules of behavior on the territory of the bisonarium, as well as interesting information about bison.

The creation of this nursery was the first step towards the revival of native fauna for these places.
