DONATE £1 TOWARDS BEAVER 🦦 CONSERVATION IN THE UK 🇬🇧. 400 years ago, after decades of being hunted for their fur, the Eurasian Beaver became extinct from Britain. Without the Beaver ponds, native fish populations dwindled as their habitat disappeared. Without the fish, birds also suffered as their food source vanished. Forest ecosystems quickly flooded in the absence of beaver dams. ... In 2009, the first Beavers were re-introduced into western Scotland. A year later, sightings of two kits estimated to be 8 weeks old emerged. Unfortunately however, tensions between Beavers and farmers have been rising. Despite a law banning the killing of Beavers in the UK, a pregnant mother was shot dead by a farmer in 2019. Remarkably, as Beavers return to their native forests, wildflowers, fish and birds have all reappeared around their ponds. If you’d like to support the reintroduction of Beavers in the UK, simply buy this listing and we will match your donation.
