The Return of Beavers to The UK - and why this should be celebrated!

The implications of beaver reintroduction to biodiversity and ecosystem functioning.

Sam Gandy has a PhD in ecological science from the University of Aberdeen and an MRes in entomology from Imperial College London. He has a lifelong interest in nature and wildlife and has been fortunate enough to conduct field research in various parts of the world including the UK, Kefalonia, Almeria, Texas, the Peruvian Amazon, Vietnam and Ethiopia. He has a keen interest in beavers and their overdue introduction to the UK, and was media volunteer for the Scottish Wild Beaver Group, effectively a PR agent for Scotland's beavers.
