๐ŸŒŸ Beaver fever is back! ๐ŸŒŸ

๐Ÿ“ We are excited to hear that these magnificent creatures have been announced as a European Protected Species

โ• This follows the exciting news that a beaver kit was born in Dorset for the first time in over 400 years this summer!

๐ŸŒณ This new status ensures beavers cannot legally be captured, killed, injured or disturbed, and their dams cannot be damaged without a license.

๐Ÿ’ง Beavers are incredible ecosystem engineers, and their presence in Dorset is predicted to improve water quality as well as reduce flooding by waterway management. 

 The amazing Dorset Beaver Project is hosted by Dorset Wildlife Trust University of Exeter & Wessex Water
