The Beaver Institute™ is interested in hearing from you regarding any beaver-related scientific research or management project study you are interested in pursuing. We desire to provide financial and/or technical assistance to researchers and others interested in advancing the scientific understanding and progressive management of beavers.
Current Beaver Research Project Partnerships include: Ohio – Study on the water quality benefits of beaver dams and beaver dam analogs on agricultural runoff. Oregon – Facilitating salmonid passage where flow devices are used to control beaver damming behavior (pending), Maryland – Promoting progressive beaver management to cost-effectively improve water quality inflow to Chesapeake Bay with Ecotone Inc. (pending).
Please contact us with your research ideas so we can discuss how to best help you achieve your project goals.
