About:

Beavers are living in various parts of the UK now and they are transforming rivers. This biodiversity champion is on it’s way to becoming widely accepted as a British wildlife species. Now is the time to find out more about them as Beaver experts will be needed across the country. They have already gained protected species status in Scotland and it is only a matter of time before they are protected in England and Wales.

The course will take place partly online with a field trip to Otterton, Devon, home of one of Britain’s only wild beaver populations. You need to complete the online part BEFORE the field course.

During the course you will learn about:

In the classroom (online):

  • Ecology
  • Beaver introductions
  • Conservation
  • How beavers help the landscape
  • Legislation
  • Surveying

In the field:

  • Tracks and signs

There will be a field trip to the River Otter to see beaver signs for a half day in the morning of 5th May 2022.

The course will be held at Otterton Village Hall, Otterton, Devon.

The course will begin at 10:00am and finish at 1:00pm.

Why not book on the Otter Ecology and Surveying course at the same time? Both field courses take place on the same day and place.
