beaver reintroduction update

Aug 19, 2018

Earlier in the year we told you about the reintroduction of beavers on to hosts Woodland Valley Farm land in Cornwall during 2017, in partnership with the Cornish Wildlife Trust, Exeter, Southampton and Plymouth universities and CoaSt.

We’ve recently heard from Chris Jones, owner of the farm, that the beavers are in very good shape, that two kits were born earlier in the spring and they are all doing well.

He said: ‘They are all doing well, more water here than ever. They adapt the environment to suit them. And us if we had the brains to see it.’

It’s great to be able to bring you such a good news story and we hope Chris will stay in touch as the project progresses.
