Unravelling perceptions of Eurasian beaver reintroduction in Great Britain

Reintroduction of the Eurasian beaver (Castor fiber) – is under debate in Great Britain with a number of projects underway. The species is estimated to have been resident until the 16th century, when hunted to extinction by humans. Similar events occurred in Europe and reintroduction has led to a self‚Äźsustaining population across most of the beavers’ historical range.
