Event description

In autumn 2021 the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust released two pairs of adult beavers to the Willington Wetlands Nature Reserve, marking the return of the species to Derbyshire for the first time in 800 years!

In this follow-up to ‘Beaver Reintroduction: Nature's engineers restoring an entire ecosystem in Derbyshire’ (September 2021), Kate Lemon (Derbyshire Wildlife Trust) will look at how the beavers have got on in their first year since relocation, and what impact they’ve had on the wetlands.

As the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust celebrates 60 years, we will also look at other work being carried out in the region by the trust and what they hope to achieve in the future.

Part of the CIWEM Biodiversity digital series.

Register for 23 November 2022
