In the Westpomeranian Region, wisent can be found in:
a) the Wałcz forest inspectorate (a part of Mirosławiec and Drawsko Pomorskie) – 43 wisents can be found here,
b) the area of Łobez and Dobrzany – 8 wisents each,
c) in the Wolin National Park – 5 wisents.
These animals were brought into the region in July 1976. Initially there were four wisents: „Pomina”, „Podskakiewicz”, „Pompeja” and „Podwyżka”. Currently, most of the wisents living in the farm were born here, and 1-2 wisent calves come into the world at this farm each year. Now, there are five wisents in the farm in Międzyzdroje. All lowland wisents, (among them, the wisent from Wolin), are registered and marked in the Wisent Pedigree Book. Their names in Polish start with PO – the first letters of the word POLAND.
The white-tailed sea eagles also live in the open. In the Westpomeranian Region, they are most numerous in and around the Szczecin Lagoon area, around Wolin Island (with nine couples within the area of 13 km2), within Wkrzańska Forest and in the Myśliborskie and Drawskie Lakelands.
It is also worth mentioning that the white-tailed sea eagle is the symbol of the Wolin National Park. Furthermore, in the park, there is a bird hatchery where subsequent generations of birds have been nesting and raising their fledglings for 120 years.
