Beavers are an important ally in fight against climate change

Letter to Editor by Gary Clarida, RV – Times, March 30th 2024

We need beavers. Beavers could be a powerful ally to address many of the problems we face due to a warming climate.

Their activities increase wildlife habitat and enhance biological diversity. By slowing water they reduce flood risk for low land communities. Beaver dams will increase the amount of water moving into aquifers.

These attributes make a strong case for the reintroduction of Beavers into as much of the natural landscape as possible. The environment needs them and so do we.
