Grants for Living with Beavers

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.

There are a number of companies that can help you find a way to peacefully co-exist with beavers:
