Beavers are award-winning success story for Scotland

THE SUCCESSFUL reintroduction of Eurasian beavers to Scotland has been voted Wildlife Success Story of the Year in the 2017 BBC Countryfile magazine awards.

The species was the winner of a public vote and the award has been welcomed by the Scottish Wildlife Trust and Royal Zoological Society of Scotland, partners in the five-year Scottish Beaver Trial.

In November last year, the Scottish Government announced that the species would be formally recognised as a native species after being hunted to extinction 400 years ago.
