The beloved beaver is the largest rodent in North America (and second in the world only to capybaras). As one of the few animals that significantly modifies and creates their own habitat, studying their interactions with rivers is key for improving restoration plans.

Beavers mitigate the impacts of climate change, helping conserve water during periods of drought and enhance wetland carbon storage. They are one of the most cost effective and sustainable solutions for ecological restoration and climate change resilience.
