Species Reintroductions

Scottish Beaver Trial

In 2009 Scottish Ministers licensed a five year species reintroduction field trial. This is being run by the Scottish Beaver Trial (SBT), a consortium of the Royal Zoological Society for Edinburgh and the Scottish Wildlife Trust. More information can be found on the SBT website.

Scientific advice to Scottish Ministers and monitoring of the SBT is the responsibility of SNH. Further information on their role can be found on the SBT section of the SNH website, see link below.
