The feasibility and acceptability of reintroducing the European beaver to England (NECR002)

This report was commissioned jointly by Natural England and the People’s Trust for Endangered Species to help develop views on the feasibility and desirability of beaver reintroductions in England, and to provide information on what contribution beavers might make to national habitat restoration targets. The findings in the report should also help Natural England prepare itself for making a decision if it receives an application to release beavers into the wild in England.

The views in the report are those of the authors and do not necessarily represent those of Natural England. At the time of publication, Natural England’s Board has not considered its position on beaver reintroductions.
