Beavers are living in various parts of the UK now and they are transforming rivers and wetlands. 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.

This is our one-day beaver course delivered online.

There are two videos in this course.

At the end there will be a short quiz and if you get over 70% you will receive a Certificate.
