The Minister speaks!

Today's hot news is that Stewart Stevenson has announced a three year period of study for the beavers of the Tay. A committee is to be set up to advise farmers and others who may be troubled by their presence. It seems that translocation from one place to another will be possible. This is great news and we of the campaign for the Free Beavers of the Tay and the Scottish Wild Beaver Group are delighted with the Minister's decision. We are most grateful to all those who have supported our campaign. At the same time we are looking forward to working with other interested parties for the conservation of the Eurasian beaver in Scotland.

This is one of the photographs that Ray Scott in May/June 2010. It looks like a young beaver - a yearling perhaps.
