Beaver Information Session

Over 30 landowners and managers attended the Scottish Land & Estates organised beaver information session in Perthshire on 18 March. Representatives from the Scottish Government, Scottish Natural Heritage and Tayside Beaver Study Group (the body in place to monitor beaver activity) attended the event to answer questions and discuss issues surrounding the presence of the unlicensed beaver population across Tayside.

Discussion included the legal status of beavers, mitigation measures and impacts seen as a result of beaver activity.

People with experience of beaver activity on their land were encouraged to complete a landowner questionnaire distributed by the Tayside Beaver Study Group, with the aim of documenting impacts on land use and establishing what advice and information people need in regards to beaver activity.

The information gathered by the Tayside Beaver Study Group will feed into reports provided to the Minister for Environment & Climate Change to aid in the decision making process taking place in 2015, as to the next step for beavers in Scotland.

Landowners and land managers with experience of beaver activity on their land are encouraged to contact the Tayside Beaver Project Officer Helen Dickinson on 01738 458592 or This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .
