The Welsh Beaver Project is investigating the feasibility of bringing wild beavers (Castor fiber) back to Wales. This work is being led by the Wildlife Trusts in Wales as part of their Living Landscapes strategy.

This website aims to provide reliable useful information on the European Beaver.  It has been developed in coordination with farming, forestry, fisheries and conservation interests as part of a cooperative consultation exercise.

Here you can find out more about beavers, download reports and get the details of the public events we will be holding.

We are keen to hear what you think about the reintroduction of beavers to Wales.  Please send us your comments by phone, email or letter.
