Ben Goldfarb: The return of the beaver - why does it matter?

Date: Monday 3 June 2019

Venue: Alumni Auditorium, The Forum, University of Exeter, Stocker Road, Exeter, EX4 4SZ

Event Information

There are now around ca. 1000 beavers living in Great Britain, the beginning of a great recovery story for a species that was thought until recently to be forever lost from our shores.

How has this happened in the last decade?

Is it good news, what does it mean for the future of our native fauna and the overall restoration of something we might think of as 'the wild' and, above all, what can we do to get involved?

Join us for a public talk with beaver expert Ben Goldfarb as we look at the science, the stories, the opportunities, challenges, and the sheer practical logistics of reintroducing beaver to our lands.

This public lecture is hosted by the University of Exeter, Embercombe and Devon Wildlife Trust.

Short course
This event is being run as part of a short course being offered at Embercombe.

The two-day residential course is being hosted by Embercombe with Ben Goldfarb, Derek Gow and Professor Richard Brazier.
