It is and will always be a neverending battle. obtained a “leaked letter asking Biden to ban beaver trapping nationwide”.  The group is called the Western Watersheds Project, and they claim that protecting beavers will reduce the effects of climate change.

An environmentalist group plans to ask President Joe Biden to issue an executive order banning beaver trapping and hunting on all federal public land, according to a finalized draft of a letter sent out for signatures and obtained by MeatEater.

In the 10-page document, the Western Watersheds Project (WWP) claims that protecting beavers on all federally managed land in the U.S. will reduce the effects of climate change by creating new wetland areas, among a host of other environmental benefits.

“In response to protection, beavers and their dams would begin expanding in numbers, setting in motion processes that would lead to the restoration of hundreds of thousands of miles of degraded streams and the creation of millions of hectares of new, nature-based carbon capture and storage (CCS) zones in the form of stream-corridor wetlands,” the letter states.

Biologists, trappers, and ecologists, however, warn that unilaterally banning beaver trapping and hunting would hamstring state agencies as they work to keep beaver populations healthy and mitigate conflict with residents and landowners. A nationwide, one-size-fits-all policy, they say, would bring a sledgehammer to a problem that requires a scalpel.
