“We are honoured to accept the award for Britain’s Best Conservation Project in the BBC Countryfile Magazine Awards, especially in the final year of the project. This is amazing recognition for the project and its conservation value. The team’s devotion to the Trial, including raising awareness of the ecological benefits of beavers, has been tireless over the past five years.
“This award is great recognition of the pioneering work to return the beaver to the wild in the United Kingdom. Over the past five years, everyone involved in the trial has worked extraordinary hard to ensure this project has the best chance of success.
