The report, which makes the case for a managed pilot introduction, was supported by the Minister for Environment and Sustainable Development, John Griffiths who said in a statement, “…the reintroduction of beavers to Wales could offer a range of prospective benefits for Wales…” . The next stage will be further consultation and an investigation into potential release sites.
