After an absence of several centuries the Eurasian beaver, Castor fiber returned to the English countryside in the early 2000s. This report gives a brief history of the restoration of beaver as a native species in England over the last two decades. Encompassing both beavers kept in captive, but semi-wild conditions, and those living at large in the wider countryside, the report is based on information available to Natural England and the Environment Agency.
