Beavers provide great benefits to the ecosystem along with wonderful wildlife watching opportunities.
The New Hampshire Animal Rights League encourages individuals and organizations — as well as businesses and towns — experiencing problems with beavers to seek solutions for peaceful co-existence, rather than resorting to trapping.
Living with beavers may require more up-front effort and expense than trapping, but a beaver management system is a long-term solution. Trapping only removes the current beavers. If the habitat is attractive, it’s likely another beaver family will move in.
NHARL offers matching grants of up to $500 to individuals, organizations, businesses, and municipalities looking to install non-lethal solutions for managing beavers in New Hampshire.
To date, NHARL has awarded more than $5,000 in grants to individuals and organizations seeking peaceful co-existence with beavers.
