Beaver Corps Training Program and Fundraiser Update

The Beaver Institute™

Jakob Shockey, Beaver State Wildlife Solutions

Nearly 2 weeks ago the Beaver Institute launched a new Beaver Corps training program with a corresponding fundraiser. I have some good news and some bad news.

The good news is that we have already far exceeded our goal of attracting 10 students by the end of 2018. We have received 22 requests from people who want professional training to promote coexistence with beavers. These trainees are from CA, ID, ME, MD, MI, MN, MO, NC, NY, OR, TN, WA, Nova Scotia, B.C. and Scotland.
This amount of interest is exciting, yet a bit overwhelming for our new program.
Many thanks to the kind people who have already made generous donations to our fundraiser. However, the bad news is that we are still over $4,000 short of our goal of raising $5000 for student training, and now we have even more students than we planned. So our need for some financial support is real. We and our students would be very grateful for any contribution, no matter how modest. If you act in the next 48 hours before our fundraiser ends (Tuesday, August 21), your donation will be doubled by a generous benefactor.
Thank you for your consideration and support. Please click below to help us train these students.
Gratefully yours,
Mike Callahan, President
