Beavers: Translocation, Ecology and Mitigation

The Cairngorm National Park Authority (CPNA) is in the process of applying for a license to translocate beavers to the national park. Jonathan Willet and Lewis Pate from CNPA discuss what is involved in their beaver translocation process.

Róisín Campbell-Palmer from Beaver Trust explains the ecology of beavers and how they interact in a catchment. Julia Duncan from Atholl Estates, where beavers have resided for many years, highlights what it is like to live and work alongside them and Kirsten Brewster from NatureScot advises of the information available to farmers, land managers and land owners through NatureScot’s beaver mitigation scheme.
