Where are they?
BISON TRAIL CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE: Currently there are field activities taking place in the bison area. Despite the information signs at the entrances of the trail, volunteers which can clarify guidelines and our efforts to make people aware about the importance to follow the set guidelines, a number of visitors is deliberately going off trail. This cannot be combined with the current field activities. Therefore we have decided to close the Bison trail from November 20th until further notice.
Some bison are fitted with GSM/GPS-collars. In the map below you can check the chances to spot the bison. The GPS location will become visible in the map when the animals are in the vicinity of any of the places where they can be spotted according to the guidelines of the area.
During Bison Trail season (September to March) we would like to point out that public is requested to stay on the Bison Trail to not disturb the flora and fauna present. This part of Zuid-Kennemerland National Park is designated as resting area for all the fauna present in this Natura 2000 protected area. Leaving the path will have negative consequences for the research carried out into the diverse ecological aspects of the bison, vegetation and several animals that come over to this area for their rest. It is not allowed to wander around in the bison area. We strongly advise our visitors to stay on the path and follow the guidelines.
