protection of beavers

13 May 2020

I'm very pleased that the local agency for the protection of beavers is using one of my recent portraits of the beaver mother to support their work.

While I was out there observing the beavers, one of the rangers who protect the area asked me if I had seen whether the female beaver is lactating. They asked me to share any photo that provides evidence that she has kits with them and the agency. When I sent them my photo, the agency asked for permission to publish it.

I'm very happy to make a small contribution to the protection of these wonderful animals. I only hope that everybody else who attempts observing them will treat them with the necessary respect to not disturb the young family in their natural habitat.
