Eurasian Beaver ecology, status and potential in Britain – a whistle-stop tour

Online talk with Heather Devey, Cumbria Beaver Group Project Officer

The Eurasian Beaver (Castor fiber) is the first mammal to be reintroduced to Britain following its nationwide extinction 400 years ago, and is a species that holds the key to restoring our lost wetland habitats, along with the endangered species and vital ecosystem functions that they support.

With an increasing demand in enclosed reintroduction projects, and the ground-breaking approval for a colony of wild-living beavers to remain in Devon by DEFRA this year, the momentum of reinstating these ecosystem engineers is growing.

Join Cumbria Beaver Group representative Heather to become ‘reacquainted’ with this often-misunderstood mammal, to discover its ecology, impacts and potential.

Watch this talk from the comfort of home on the NHSN Youtube Channel, premiering Friday 10 October at 7.00 pm.
