Eager Beaver (Le cas du castor)

The European Beaver is a well established host on the French rivers. Yet, the animal has reached the brink of extinction and only owes its survival to changes in approach to environmental protection. Hunted and disturbed for centuries, the beaver makes a triumphant return, both in our countryside and near cities. His work as an architect creates a favorable environment for biodiversity and his presence contributes to the preservation of many species. But the constructions of the river engineer disrupt human activities. In order not to reproduce the mistakes of the past, beavers and men must today learn to live together.
