Reporting of beaver sightings

Because of the size of the current range it is almost impossible for us, to detect all of the newly established beaver settlements. Therefore, we appreciate reports of pedestrians, farmers, fishermen or hunters who have - by chance - found beaver settlements, which are not yet known by us.
To confirm that the signs you have found are actually caused by a beaver, you can use our short guide.

We are not only interested in living beavers but also in dead animals (for example road accident victims), which you can report to us. The detection of a carcass can indicate places (e.g. road bridges), where hazards for humans and animals are possible. There are several possibilities to minimize the hazard potential at such locations with respect of the safety of humans (e.g. motorists) as well as of the animals Your report might be helpful to implement such measures.

By using the form below, you can communicate your observations to us - if you like to and if your time allows that. For this purpose, it would be nice if you could specify the location in more detail in the section "Information on your beaver observation". For this, informations on the name of the waters as well as the Name of the nearest village would be very helpful. To specify the location more closely, you could also use our distribution map. Entering your phone number or your e-mail address would be of advantage if we might want to contact you to clarify details. However, this information is not obligatory.

We would like to thank you at this point in advance for your report!

A summary of all the people who have informed us about their beaver observations in the past, can be found on the page beaver respondents.
