Beaver Release on the San Pedro


On Friday, April 23rd, WMG was part of a team that released a beaver along the San Pedro River. A homeowner along the Verde River contacted Critter Control, a private animal removal company, asking them to remove the beaver. WMG connected Critter Control with a private property owner along the San Pedro that was happy to welcome the furry friend. The area that the beaver was released into has a deep pool, year-round flow, and cottonwoods for them to chomp on. The morning of the release had many excited community partners in attendance. Fingers crossed that the beaver is able to reproduce and bring more genetic diversity to the San Pedro beaver population! There is word another beaver along the Verde River may be caught and relocated into the San Pedro, so stay tuned.
