Fort Langely chooses to protect beavers with flow device

It’s a beautiful day in Fort Langely, British Columbia.

Residents whose homes surround a local trail and creek had expressed concerns to the municipality over the possibility of the trail flooding due to beaver activity. And what made this beautiful is that Fort Langely contacted APFA to help out.

Our team, including wonderful volunteers from LUSH Cosmetics, spent an afternoon installing a special combo flow device on the trail that should assist in preventing flooding in the area of concern.

At the end of the day, the residents were happy because flooding concerns would be mitigated; the municipality was happy because they were able to provide a progressive, proactive solution to their constituents; we were happy because trapping – the traditional response to beaver activity in many municipalities – was averted; and the beavers were happy, because they could just keep on being beavers.

Our Living With Wildlife campaign is funded entirely by donations – you can support it through membership, monthly donations or even buying our merchandise. Save beavers now.
