Baby Beaver Is Boost to Reintroduced Wild Population

A bouncing baby beaver has joined the ranks of the European beavers re-introduced to the wild in Scotland just a few years ago — a positive sign for the species.
The conservation project, called the Scottish Beaver Trial, began in 2009, with the release of beavers back into the wild in the country, where they had been locally extinct for more than 400 years, according to the program's website.
A total of four beaver families were released into Knapdale Forest in Argyll where they have since built lodges and had young.
