You are invited to hear about the beavers
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).
