Restore Beaver Populations

Due to the unique hydrological engineering accomplished by the dam-building beaver, support and reestablishment of beaver constitute an important climate change adaptation tool for the national forests in the United States. Beavers, and their engineering work, can counter the effects of longer, more intense drought, earlier snowmelts and warmer temperatures.

Re-establishment of beaver populations in suitable habitats can be a cost-effective and efficient tool for adapting Forest Service lands and ecosystems to climate change.

Climate change is altering the patterns of precipitation and runoff we've come to know. Confronting the climate crisis also means making ecosystems more healthy and resilient in the face of the changing climate.

We ask the U.S. Forest Service to support a diverse approach to beaver restoration, a strategy that will help heal rivers, the land, and ultimately, our climate.
