Male beaver takes its first swim in the South Downs

Beavers reintroduced in the South Downs 

We've released a pair of beavers into a sheltered valley at the edge of the South Downs as part of our efforts to restore nature. The beavers will help us create a wildlife-rich wetland landscape. The project follows our successful introduction of two beavers at Holnicote in Exmoor early last year. While the animals settle in, we’re asking people not to go to the site, to give them the best possible chance of establishing themselves.
