In March 2011, two beavers were released into a 2.8 ha enclosure in the headwaters of the River Tamar in Devon, England. The project is run by the Devon Wildlife Trust with the aim of studying how beavers affect the habitat, water quality and wildlife of their wetland environment. Progress on the project can be found on the Trust’s website and Beaver Blog. The good news this year is that the beavers have given birth to a kit indicating they have adapted well to their new home. The birth of the kit has been widely reported in the media (BBC News, BBC Radio 4, BBC The One Show).
