I thought that these animals had been introduced to Scotland after a long period of consultation and considerable expense and are protected! I'm horrified that ANY are being killed.

Paul Anthony Edwards 14th February 2021

Beavers are a new introduction to the environment but are showing themselves to be an overwhelmingly positive addition. There is no reason to kill them and every reason to move them if this is absolutely and ONLY absolutely necessary.

Beavers create wildlife rich habitat. They are our ally in fighting the escalating extinction crisis. Stop killing them, and let them help us. Good work!

Tim Howard 7th January 2021

The reintroduction of beavers is fantastic as they are the ultimate environmental engineers and I whole heartedly support their protection.

With our wildlife and their habitats already in such dire straits, everything that can be done, should be done. Beaver, as a keystone species, have such a positive impact on their environments and the many other species of flora and fauna that can flourish alongside them - as well as potentially playing an integral part in our flood defences.

Having read Derek Gow’s book, Bringing back the Beaver, it seems we cannot rely on politicians or people looking after their own interests to do the right thing for biodiversity and the keystone species. It is up to individuals like me to do what little we can to support your case. Good luck

I mentioned the ludicrous treatment of the beaver, a protected species, in a letter to the First Minister in October, concerning the similarly contradictory (some might say hypocritical) management of the Clashindarroch forest, which is jeopardising its critically-endangered wildcat population. Needless to say, there has been no reply. Empty rhetoric and caving-in to the privileged elite's wishes feature more highly on government agendas (both at Holyrood and Westminster) than does the safeguarding of our environment and its flora and fauna. Don't believe the trite soundbites about making Scotland a green bastion for environmentalism.

Your organization does amazing work. I am grateful for all you do for the trees, animals and nature. For Scotland and the planet. I have forwarded news of your cause. Its wonderful how you advocate for those that cannot for themselves.... Beautiful.

Tracey James 3rd January 2021

I read George Monbiot's book 'Rewilding' and it makes so much sense to support your organisation as this is exactly what nature needs, that is the protection of such important animals to encourage biodiversity and to show the unscrupulous landowners that we can and will fight them!
