Scottish beaver reintroduction trial: final report published

The five-year trial on the reintroduction of beavers to Knapdale Forest, Argyll in Scotland finished in May 2014 and Scottish ministers will decide in 2015 whether the beavers at Knapdale, and those on the River Tay (founded originally by escapees from captivity, see SNH, Scottish Wild Beaver Group), can remain or will have to be removed. The reintroduction team have just produced their final report; this follows the recent publication of six independent studies by Scottish Natural Heritage (also see BBC News Scotland).
