Municipalities from coast to coast are constantly facing the realities of living with beavers - downed trees, the potential for flooding or changes in landscape, and, of course, the blocking of culverts and other water management systems. But lethal action - once the only option - has been proven ineffective and ecologically damaging. And even better, there's a non-lethal, long-term solution available to any municipality or landowner.
For several years, The Association for the Protection of Fur-Bearing Animals (The Fur-Bearers) has worked with private landowners and municipalities in British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario, to implement co-existence programs that incorporate flow devices, tree wrapping, education, and new policy. These programs mitigate or eliminate the very real concerns facing many decision makers and provide a solution that incorporates science, beaver behaviour, and compassionate conservation - a win for everyone involved.
Join wildlife conflict manager and beaver flow device expert Adrian Nelson as he walks our webinar audience step by step through the process of installing flow devices – as well as the importance of site selection, material choices, maintenance, and the benefits of maintaining beaver habitat.
The event will last for approximately 60 minutes including a question and answer period, and all you need to attend is a computer or Apple mobile device (iPod or iPad). A webcam or microphone is not necessary for participation.
