Devon's Wild Beavers have babies!

Watch exclusive video of the kits here.

Show your support for our vital work for England's only breeding colony of wild beavers by clicking here.

You can help – these are the first beavers born as part of England's first ever beaver reintroduction project. Thanks to generous donations Devon Wildlife Trust was able to begin the River Otter Beaver Trial this year. We now need to raise the funds for this long term work. Find out how you can help here.

Defend Nature: take action to protect Europe's laws for nature

Emsworthy_-_Simon_Williams_26_re-sized

Across Europe, including here in Devon, vital laws protect our most precious wildlife and wild places. It's not just wildlife that depend on them - we do too, for cleaner rivers, vital habitat for pollinating insects and natural places we can enjoy and spend time in. Without these laws our world would be a poorer place.

Right now the European Commission (EC) is reviewing these laws - the 'Nature Directives' - and asking people to give their opinion on them. So it's vital that as many of us as possible say that we feel strongly about this and don't want to see these laws weakened.
