Beaver dams create vibrant wetlands that provide wildlife with habitats, enrich aquatic ecosystems and absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Once nearly hunted to extinction, beaver populations have reached stable levels but are still only a fraction of what they once were.

Given their immense value, we are asking President Biden to issue an executive order that bans beaver trapping and hunting on our public lands. Send a message now urging the president to protect these crucial critters.
