Beavers in Devon

It's almost a year since the Government decision that Devon’s wild beavers could stay on the River Otter and move into neighbouring rivers. Our beaver conservation staff are monitoring where in Devon beavers have been spotted as the population grows.  Now you can have your say on the future of beavers in the wild not just here in Devon but across the country. Have your say in the Government public consultation on the future of beavers and help us return these amazing animals to our rivers.
