Programme Title: The Beavers are Back! Description:Here’s your chance to speak to Beaver Expert Robert Needham, Field Officer for the Scottish Beaver Trial.
Beavers became extinct in the UK 400 years ago, but now they are back in Scotland as part of a trial reintroduction, being co-ordinated by the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland and the Scottish Wildlife Trust in partnership.
Since May 2009, four beaver families have been reintroduced to Knapdale, near Lochgilphead in Argyll and they have been busy since then making lodges, a dam and producing kits (baby beavers). This is your chance to ask lots of questions related to beavers and their habitat and to find out the latest news from the Trial.
Roisin will be showing interesting photo footage of the beavers as well as showing you what beaver signs to look out for, just in case you want to go to Knapdale and find them for yourself.
This Glow meet is aimed at Primary and lower secondary learners.
Date and time: 27/04/2012 10:45 Programme Duration: Up to 1 hour Supporting materials: Beaver Education Pack Programme tags: sciences; pupil interest; industry expert Registered with Glow TV?: SIGN UP TO TAKE PART HERE
