Education resources

Learning resources

We produce a wide range of content to promote cross-curricular learning and increase the awareness of beavers.

The cultural reintroduction of beavers is vital to support their return across Britain, for this and future generations. Our Lesson Packs are designed for younger audiences, in collaboration with teachers and linked to the national education curriculum – and they’re free for anyone to download!

The below presentations will open in PDF form. If you would like them in a PowerPoint format, please email

If you’ve used any of the resources below, we’d love to hear from you! You can help us to optimise our Lesson Packs, presentations and activities, as well as guiding our approach moving forward by filling in our feedback form.
