About Us

In 2011, the Scottish government decided to start trapping wild beavers that have lived in the River Tay and its many tributaries since 2001. One Beaver was captured and, sadly, died in captivity. Our charity was formed to protest the trapping of wild beavers. Trapping was suspended in the summer of 2011.

Following the reintroduction of native beavers to Scotland it is imperative that people and beavers learn to coexist once again as this amazing rodent brings us so many benefits. We aim to promote the study, conservation and protection of wild Eurasian beavers and their natural habitats in Scotland. We want to teach children the benefits of the beaver.
