Reintroduction of Beavers in the UK is hopeful for freshwater environments

 

 

Preliminary trials of Beaver reintroduction in Devon, carried out by the University of Exeter, have shown that the establishment of Beavers looks promising for the environment. A pair of beavers introduced to the area six years ago have created 13 ponds and a 183m stream. The ponds trapped around 16 tonnes of Carbon and 1 tonne of Nitrogen, and additionally the network of dams created have helped to filter out soil and fertiliser from the water.
