Bioneers Radio interviews our Beaver Believers

Neil Harvey, host of Bioneers Radio, interviews Kate Lundquist and Brock Dolman to learn all about beaver: their history in North America, how they slow and spread water, create critical habitat, and how they can be harnessed as a powerful tool in buffering the impacts of the climate changes we’re seeing.

Particularly riveting is the change of heart that some ranchers are experiencing when it comes to beaver. As Kate puts it, “There are ranchers in Nevada who are willing to go on record now saying, ‘Twenty years ago we used to shoot the beaver and now we wouldn’t have a cattle operation without them.’ And they’re having to save their neighbors who come and literally get water from them and truck it to their operation because they haven’t been able to retain the water in the same way as those who have these beaver complexes. “
