About the Event
A National Trust team will be on hand to explain how they are working towards a positive and carefully-managed phased return of the captivating water engineers. It follows years of collaboration with local landowners, farmers and other interested parties, which forms a key part of the Trust’s extensive land use programme in Purbeck. Like the NT, Planet Purbeck knows how hugely beneficial beavers can be to the environment they – and we – inhabit by improving water quality and biodiversity. We are fully supportive of the project while realising there may be concerns and issues which have yet to be aired or resolved. We will be aiming to create an open forum where views from all sides of conversation are welcome.
The project is part of a national programme reintroducing beavers to the the UK. See more on the Wildlife Trusts website https://www.wildlifetrusts.org/saving-species/beavers
