Having pioneered the reintroduction of beavers to Britain, The Wildlife Trusts are now calling for a Beaver Strategy for England.

This will ensure populations increase and spread and their numbers and health are monitored. It will also put in place support for farmers, landowners and river users whose activities may be impacted.

Beavers are great for our landscapes, helping to reduce flooding and creating habitats which benefit a whole host of other wildlife species.
