Event Details

This course aims to introduce the Eurasian beaver, a native British mammal, whose reintroduction is receiving much attention.  We will look at the basic biology, ecology and behaviours of this unique and fascinating animal which is becoming part of our mammal assemblage in areas of Scotland and Devon. Though beavers may be more challenging to observe directly, their distinctive field signs can offer much information on their habitat use and lifestyles. This course will also discuss the conservation status of this species, the ecological benefits and potential conflicts with its reintroduction, touching on management solutions to enable us to re-establish a connection with this formerly widespread ecosystem engineer. The day will involve a mix of classroom based teaching and a field session to identify beaver field signs, in a relaxed manner with plenty of discussion. We will be based in Dunkeld, surrounded by the stunning Perthshire scenery, wild beaver populations are established in nearby River Tay catchment.

The Mammal Society

We are the only organisation involved in the study and conservation of all British mammals - from dormice to dolphins, and bats to badgers. We support a growing network of amateur and professional mammalogists and conservationists working for mammals across the country and abroad, and provide a hub of information and expertise. We are the national voice for mammal conservation, working to identify the threats mammals face and halt declines before it’s too late; we provide scientific advice to advocate sound conservation policies based on thorough research and surveying; and we inform and educate people of all ages to raise awareness of mammal conservation issues.
