Beavers are back in Dorset

In celebration of World Wildlife Day we find out more about the reintroduction of beavers in Dorset from Dorset Wildlife Trust.

After an absence of 400 years, beavers are back. When we think of natural solutions to the ecological and climate crises, beavers are a ‘keystone species’ with huge potential to help nature cope and rebuild. Their unique set of skills can really help shape our landscapes for the better. In the past few years, several beaver re-introduction projects have been planned and started across the UK and now, for the first time since the 16th century, Dorset is home to beavers once more.
