In recent years, beavers have made a splash in the news for their restoration in parts of England and Scotland, through a series of enclosed and wild releases.
In July this year, beavers were put back on the map in Northumberland through an enclosed beaver release at National Trust Wallington. To celebrate this step toward restoring a missing part of our freshwater ecosystems, we invite you to join us for an evening (re)discovering beavers.
With footage and photography from Britain and Europe to illustrate, you will explore beaver ecology and coexistence with Heather Devey, Co-Director of Wild Intrigue, before hearing an update about the Wallington beaver family from Helen McDonald, Lead Ranger at National Trust Wallington.
Free and open to all. Hosted at part of the Natural History Society of Northumbrian (NHSN) winter talks series, at the Curtis Auditorium, Herschel Building, Newcastle University, NE1 7RY.
An 1827 talk will be hosted beforehand, so we recommend arriving for 6pm to enjoy this too.
