Quote from Allan Bantick, Chairman of the Scottish Wildlife
Trust and Founding Chair of the Scottish Beaver Trial Steering
"After more than ten years of
campaigning we now have beavers back in Scotland, albeit
on a trial basis, and I count myself incredibly privileged
to have played an active part in the process.
On 28th and 29th May 2009 three beaver families were successfully
released in three separate locations within the Knapdale
Forest in Argyll.
After two days all three groups were still together at the
lochs where they had been released and were showing every
sign of being delighted with their new homes.
After three days at least one of the groups had begun to
build a lodge.
Now that the beavers are here this
site has fulfilled its main function. However, it
will remain available as a source of information.
My grateful thanks to all of you who
have supported the Scottish Beavers Network over the past
