Storyline

From PBS - The fascinating story of beavers in North America - their history, their near extinction, and their current comeback, as a growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists have come to regard beavers as overlooked tools when it comes to reversing the disastrous effects of global warming and world-wide water shortages. Once valued for their fur or hunted as pests, these industrious rodents are seen in a new light through the eyes of this novel assembly of beaver enthusiasts and "employers" who reveal the ways in which the presence of beavers can transform and revive landscapes. Using their skills as natural builders and brilliant hydro-engineers, beavers are being recruited to accomplish everything from re-establishing water sources in bone-dry deserts to supporting whole communities of wildlife drawn to the revitalizing aquatic ecosystems their ponds provide.

Beavers!!!
2 January 2015 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This episode of "Nature" is all about the humble beaver and their importance to the ecosystem. And, it's surprisingly enjoyable and well worth seeing. I could see children, adults and even biologists having a darned good time watching this show.

Much of the show is, naturally, about the benefits of having beavers in the wild. However, what I really liked was seeing all the wonderful footage of these wonderful creatures--such as showing them with humans who are fostering them as well as a beaver-cam inside the den to show the creatures in their natural environment. Very thorough, very engaging and, most importantly, totally adorable! Additionally, it's well made and won't bore anyone.
