Tozers Give Legal Backing To Devon Wild Life Trust’s £100,000 Beaver Crowdfunding Campaign


Following a four-hundred-year absence, a breeding population of beavers have arrived back in East Devon and Tozers Solicitors LLP are delighted to provide the legal backing for Devon Wildlife Trust (DWT) to run a five year campaign which promotes the beaver’s survival.

The new crowdfunding campaign is England’s first beaver re-introduction project and needs to raise £100,000 in order to safeguard the future of these fascinating animals.  The beavers are currently living on the banks of the River Otter and in order to keep this as their home the DWT aims to:

  • Ensure that the beaver community remains genetically healthy by introducing new animals to the river and monitoring their welfare
  • Work with local people
  • Make sure that all of these outcomes are fully supported by independent evidence

The Support Devon Beavers Campaign is brought to life by a heart-warming video by Chris Packham.

You can make a general donation, or pledge a specific amount for a unique Devon beaver-themed reward, including beaver artworks created in Devon, a beaver cuddly toy and authentic wood chips gnawed by beavers in Devon. There is also a business support section.

Tozers Solicitors LLP enjoy a close association with Devon Wildlife Trust and have been delighted to support the legalities of this study. Like most Devonians we feel very fortunate to only have to step outside our front doors to be immersed in an abundance of nature.
