The Welsh Beaver Project has teamed up with The Bevis Trust (TBT) as a partner organisation in reintroducing beavers to Wales. The Bevis Trust is a charitable organisation based in South-West Wales, located on a livestock farm that is heavily involved with nature conservation.
The Bevis Trust is also home to three beaver families. Each family lives in a large enclosure, but behave as they would in the wild. Beavers are crepuscular animals, which means they are active dawn and dusk. Now that summer is on its way and with daylength increasing means this is the best time of the year to spot beavers. We hope that one day we will be able to watch beavers in the wild, but in the meantime The Bevis Trust are offering the chance for people to come and watch beavers at their farm.
There will be the opportunity to watch beavers from either the comfort of a hide; one hide can seat up to 10 people and another hide seats two people or from a bench overlooking a beaver pond.
There will be a charge of £20.00 per visitor as a guide is required, but the funds will go towards the Welsh Beaver Reintroduction Project and you will be offered an unrivaled opportunity to see beavers within their natural habitat exhibiting all kinds of beaver behaviours. During your visit, there will also be the opportunity to look out for other species such as dabchicks, kingfishers, water voles and moorhens to name, but a few.
Whilst we cannot guarantee that you will see beavers, this is the best opportunity to try and view them in Wales!
