Beaver swimming in the river

Reintroducing beavers to help rivers manage climate change 

We've released a pair of beavers at Holnicote in Somerset to improve flood management and support wildlife on our rivers. The beavers will help make areas of the river more resilient to climate change and the extremes of weather it will bring. The dams they create will hold water in dry periods, help to lessen flash-flooding downstream, reduce erosion and improve water quality.
