Beavers to be released at the Knepp Estate, Sussex in 2020

Two pairs of beavers will be released under Natural England licence into a 250 ha enclosure in the River Adur catchment on Knepp Estate in spring or autumn this year. The release will constitute a 5-year trial run by the Sussex Wildlife Trust and Knepp Estate (Knepp Reintroductions, Countrylife, Sussex Wildlife Trust, The Argus). The owners of the 1400 ha estate, Charlie Burrell and Isabella Tree, are well known for their ground-breaking rewilding approach to regenerating and restoring the landscape (for more information, see Knepp Castle Estate).
