Scottish beaver reintroduction finds support

The 5-year official trial introduction of beavers at Knapdale in Argyll, Scotland ends this month. As reported on BBC News Scotland, a YouGov poll commissioned by the Scottish Beaver Trial suggests that 60% of Scots support the reintroduction, whereas 5% are opposed. The Scottish government will decide next year whether to allow beavers to become reestablished in Scotland, and their decision will be influenced not only by the Knapdale trial, but also by the impacts of the population of ‘escaped’ beavers on the River Tay.
