Who gives a dam? The role of the beaver in sustainable river management?

The beavers’ dam-building stores huge quantities of water and slows peak flows during flood events, potentially lessening devastating floods. Against the backdrop of an understanding of the complex nature of the water cycle as s system , hear about how beavers may hold a vital solution to mitigating flooding in fresh water catchment.
