Beaver survey

Bringing Back Beavers Survey

Have your say

As we bring beavers back to Nottinghamshire, your opinions and local knowledge are valuable to us. Your answers will help us gauge opinions on beavers and other potential reintroductions developed with input from experts and partners through our Species Recovery Framework.

We’d also like to hear about recent wildlife sightings. This will help us understand how effective nearby gardens, parks and towns are as wildlife corridors linking Idle Valley Nature Reserve and our other sites across Nottinghamshire.

Please complete the survey below, it'll only take a few minutes. Tick as many options as you wish, feel free to skip any questions you do not wish to answer. Your answers are confidential and will not be linked to your name if survey results are shared beyond Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust. Kindly give us your email address, so we can share the survey results with you. Thank you.

1. How do you feel about the forthcoming reintroduction of beavers to the Idle Valley Nature Reserve?

2. Which of these facts did you already know about beavers, before reading about our plans?

3. Which of these other British native species would you like to see reintroduced in Nottinghamshire?

4. Which notable species have you seen in your garden or immediate neighbourhood in the last 12 months?

This will help us understand where these sightings took place.

5. Do you have particular concerns about some of our much loved species and wild places?
