Welcome to the dedicated Glaven Beaver Project webpage. We’re hugely excited to be pioneering this conservation project, in partnership with Natural England, The Farming and Wildlife Advisory Group, Environment Agency and North Norfolk Coast Partnership.
Having completed a detailed feasibility assessment, we’re confident that returning this ‘keystone’ species to a fully secure enclosure in North Norfolk will provide a wide variety of benefits for wildlife and people including cleaning water, holding back floodwater, enhancing biodiversity and capturing carbon.
We hope that this page provides you with all the information you need including:
Below are two excellent and highly informative short videos that provide a wealth of information about reintroducing beavers and the benefits that they can provide:
- England’s First Wild Beavers in Over 400 Years! UK Beavers on the River Otter, Devon (credit and thanks to Roxy the zoologist)
- Beavers Without Borders: a short documentary (credit and thanks to the Beaver Trust)
We’ve compiled a list of Frequently Asked Questions about beavers. We hope that these will answer your questions, but if not, please do contact us.
We’ll be hosting a series of events (both online and in person) to learn more about these fascinating animals, and to visit the beaver enclosure itself!
