Beavers once shaped Britain’s waterways, creating thriving wetlands and complex river systems brimming with invertebrates, amphibians, birds and fish before they were hunted to extinction around 400 years ago.

As we look to tackle the climate and biodiversity emergencies, restoring beavers to their former range will help us build climate resilient landscapes and restore freshwater habitats and the species that rely on them.


Beaver Trust is a nature restoration charity run by a small team with expertise in conservation, ecology and land management who provide practical solutions to help people live alongside beavers and support legislation that rebuilds ecosystems and strengthens climate resilience.
