Beavers once shaped our landscape, but have since been hunted to almost extinction. What does the future look like for beavers in the UK?

About this event

Beavers once roamed across our countryside, shaping the landscape and waterways, providing habitat for a huge abundance of fish, birds and insects, but have since been hunted almost to extinction. In this talk, you will learn about their history, what’s being done now to provide suitable habitats to facilitate beaver reintroduction, and what the future looks like for beavers in the UK.

The Beaver Trust and Cornwall Beaver Project help people to relearn how to live alongside beavers and wetlands through talking to communities, setting up networks, and supporting projects across the country with their team of beaver experts.

Field Studies Council Natural History Live webinars are free online learning experiences for adults, comprising of a 30-40 minute talk from a guest speaker, followed by a question and answer session. We host them on Zoom and we will send out joining instructions on the day of the event.
