Beavers are back, and are slowing recovering
This map shows where Eurasian beavers (Castor fiber) currently live in Britain. Red pins represent enclosures containing beavers whilst the green pins aim to approximate the range of wild beavers.
The map doesn’t contain any pins for zoos even though some (such as Wildwood in Kent) do keep a group of beavers and several others (such as Five Sisters Zoo in West Lothian) help with beaver translocations between sites.
