Beavers were almost eliminated from Georgia because of unregulated trapping and habitat loss. Wildlife professionals of the 1940’s conducted restoration efforts that were quickly successful. As the beaver population expanded, management regulations were adjusted to permit a legal harvest. Today, beavers are thriving statewide, harvest demands are low, and there is no closed season on taking beavers in Georgia.
Your adoption will help us protect the beavers at our public nature areas like Jeff the beaver at Line Creek Nature Area, as well as beaver swamps on protected properties.
