The return of the beaver in Russia

The Beaver Aquarium, a beaver breeding centre in Voronezh State Biosphere Nature Reserve, was set up in 1924 after hunting was prohibited by The Soviet government; at the time there were few beavers left in the wild. Beavers have been bred at the Aquarium and released since 1934, and now the population in southern Russia is estimated to be >700,000 (Euronews, Restexpert).
