Return of the Beaver – public talk and residential course 3-6 June 2019, Exeter, Devon

With Ben Goldfarb, Derek Gow and Richard Brazier

Hosted by University of Exeter, Embercombe and Devon Wildlife Trust

Join us as we delve into the science, the story and the practical implications that surround the reintroduction of this once extinct animal to Great Britain. What do we need to know, what can we learn from others and where do we start?




Ben Goldfarb is an award-winning American environmental journalist whose 2018 book on beavers is a must read for all people interested in freshwater ponds, lakes, rivers and wetlands.  The book elegantly makes the case as to why a world with beavers is far healthier both to humans and other wildlife than a world without them. Eager: The Surprising, Secret Life of Beavers and Why They Matter has won the 2019 Pen/EO Wilson Prize for Literary Science Writing.
