Webcast: Leave it to Beavers

In this Wild Wednesday Webcast, we welcome Brian Bangs with The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to learn how beavers, nature’s best engineers, have incredible adaptations that make them masters of working in and modifying aquatic environments to suit their needs. For example, their ability to build dams helps store, clean, and spread water to create healthy wetlands and riparian landscapes, which is critical in the face of mounting threats from climate change and the extinction crisis.

Brian also discusses the interesting biology and specializations of beavers, the role beavers play in creating habitats for other creatures, and inventive approaches to managing conflicts with beavers to facilitate coexistence.
