Beavers may be Reintroduced

Wildlife Trusts Wales is resubmitting to NRW an application to release ten beavers somewhere as yet undisclosed in the south of Wales.  The application will be subject to public consultation.  Wildlife experts cite many ecological, landscape and tourism benefits from beaver reintroduction, but farmers and anglers can be concerned about landscape and fish migration damage, preferring conservation to be focused on existing wildlife.  The Welsh Beaver Project is currently fundraising to facilitate the return of beavers to the Welsh landscape –
