Izzie Tween, Hampshire and Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust’s Beaver Recovery Project Officer, will be delivering a presentation on the Trust’s aspiration for an open release of beavers on the Isle of Wight.
Monday 10th October
7 pm at Ventnor Arts Club
The talk will encompass beavers’ ecology and history within the region, the benefits that beaver establishments can bring, both to biodiversity and also ecosystem services, the evidence that supports this from beaver projects elsewhere in Britain, the results of the feasibility study carried out on the Isle of Wight, and the mitigation actions that can be implemented to support landowners where beaver activities might not be welcome. She will also cover recent government policy regarding the decision to grant beavers native species protected status within England, and give an update on the Trust’s consultation and licence application plans. Hope to see you there!
The presentation will take place at Ventnor Arts Club, 13 High Street, Ventnor, PO38 1RZ
Tickets £8 (non-members £10)
There will be a bar for drinks/coffee: doors open from 6.30 pm
