Tulalip Tribe – clean water, salmon and beavers

Look no further than to rodent restoration as a natural, ecological engineer. Many scientists and land managers are discovering that, far from being forces of destruction, beavers can serve as agents of water conservation, habitat creation, and stream restoration. Collaborating with beavers, many scientists point out, confers extraordinary benefits: Rodent restoration is a natural, cost-effective strategy capable of tackling problems as diverse as nitrogen pollution and stream erosion. But beaver work can be as frustrating as it is rewarding. This tale of Tribes, clean water, salmon and beavers should bring a smile to your face.
