Event description

Description


This course aims to introduce the Eurasian beaver, a native British mammal, whose reintroduction (official and unofficial) 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 southern England.

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.

A CPD certificate will be sent after the course.

Trainer: Dr Roisin Campbell-Palmer
