Climate chaos is increasing.  Summers with dry creeks, wildfires, famines, fish die-outs…   What do we do?  Leave it to Beavers?  This movie is a fascinating tale (tail?) of beavers in North America – their history, their near extinction, and their current comeback.

A growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists  regard beavers as overlooked tools when it comes to reversing disastrous effects of global climate change and world-wide water shortages. Once hunted as pests or for their fur, these industrious rodents are seen here in a new light through the eyes of this novel assembly of beaver enthusiasts and beaver “employers” who reveal the ways in which the presence of beavers can transform and revive landscapes. As 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.  A dam good movie.
