You are in­vited to hear about the beavers

Argyllshire Advertiser - - LEISURE -

The Scot­tish Wildlife Trust and Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Scot­land are host­ing a pub­lic event in Tay­val­lich Vil­lage Hall at 6pm on Tues­day Septem­ber 25 to give an up­date on the Scot­tish Beavers Re­in­force­ment Project.

Peo­ple will be able to meet project staff, find out more about the first year of work to re­in­force beaver num­bers in Mid Ar­gyll, and have their ques­tions an­swered by the team. Light re­fresh­ments will be pro­vided.

Over the past 12 months, the project has re­leased six adult beavers into Knap­dale For­est to bol­ster the pop­u­la­tion re­leased dur­ing the Scot­tish Beaver Trial. All an­i­mals were screened by qual­i­fied vets prior to re­lease to en­sure that they were healthy and dis­ease-free.

The project is led by Scot­tish Beavers, a part­ner­ship be­tween the Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Scot­land (RZSS) and the Scot­tish Wildlife Trust. It is tak­ing place on land man­aged by For­est Com­mis­sion Scot­land and has been li­censed by Scot­tish Nat­u­ral Her­itage (SNH).
