The Białowieża Primeval Forest is a breathtaking natural woodland which has been largely left to itself for hundred of years. As such it is a remarkable place to visit with a unique and wonderful atmosphere. Occupied by spectacular mammals such as bison, badgers, bats your time here will allow access to the Primeval (strict reserve) Forest as part of the research work you will undertake with the Mammal Research Institute.
Outside the strict reserve is the wider forest which, along with the strict reserve, is home to beavers, deer, wolf and lynx. Białowieża village is rural (2.5hr drive north east of Warsaw) and right next to the forest. The area is on many people’s bucket list. This is your opportunity to experience it for 14-weeks!
