Its official, beavers are back!
England’s only breeding population of wild beavers look to have a brighter future after an announcement made today.
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.
