The Białowieża Forest World Heritage site, on the
border between Poland and Belarus, is an immense range of primary forest
including both conifers and broadleaved trees covering a total area of
141,885 hectares. Situated on the watershed of the Baltic Sea and Black
Sea, this transboundary property is exceptional for the opportunities it
offers for biodiversity conservation. It is home to the largest
population of the property’s iconic species, the European bison.
