Beavers are amazing mammals. They were part of our countryside for millennia until they were finally hunted to extinction in the UK by man. We can't alter the persecution of the past, but you can help us give these marvellous creatures a brighter future.

England’s only breeding population of wild beavers look to have a brighter future after an announcement made yesterday.
Natural England has granted Devon Wildlife Trust a five year licence to monitor the beavers on the River Otter. This is a key moment in the history of modern conservation and has come after months of hard work trying to secure a long term future for the animals.

You can help – we now face the task of funding the River Otter Beaver Project. An initial call for donations led to £45,000 being raised in just two months. However the cost of the five year monitoring project is estimated to run well above this figure. Find out how you can help here.
