Welcome to our site! Beavers: Wetlands & Wildlife is an educational nonprofit that has been helping people learn about a species that builds the land's best life support system - and about lasting, win-win solutions for beaver/human conflicts for over twenty years.
All species are important in an ecosystem, but keystone species like the beaver run the show by creating vital habitat for wildlife, and valuable natural services for people. Yet only a small fraction of North America's original Castor canadensis population, prior to European settlement, remains today. Asia and Europe had even greater losses of the Eurasian beaver Castor fiber, and many countries are now trying to restore the furry engineers.
While most benefits of beaverworks (dams and wetlands) are hidden, they are nonetheless very real. This species can be an important ally in solving the earth's major environmental problems.
When conflicts with beavers arise, Beavers: Wetlands & Wildlife (BWW) suggests first identifying the specific problem, and then using environmentally sound, cost-effective methods for lasting solutions. Being proactive is best, but often people create a beaver management plan when it is needed. More and more, individuals, communities, agencies and others are opting to save money, lives and the environment with win-win solutions.
