News that a group of Devon beavers have been returned to the wild on the River Otter has been welcomed by Friends of the Earth.
Beavers living in the River Otter will be allowed to remain in the wild after they have been tested for disease, following a historic decision by Natural England to issue a licence to ‘re-introduce’ the under-threat animals.
The board of Natural England is being urged by Friends of the Earth to allow Devon’s beavers to remain in the wild, when it meets this morning (January 28, 2015) to discuss the issue.
Devon Wildlife Trust is holding a family event at its Exeter quayside headquarters next month and is inviting local families to take a break from seasonal shopping and pop along.
