"beaver" Discussed on Short Wave

"Maybe they could recruit beavers to do it. I think we're just sort of trying to go back and say, what if there were more beavers? What if they had more stable structures, would that affect what the stream looks like? The problem is the creeks here are often flooded in the wintertime and wash away beaver dams. So the team decided to build a series of starter structures for the beavers by pounding wooden poles across the stream, and weaving them with willow branches, and they called these beaver dam analogs. The idea was they'd work like a bunch of speed bumps to slow and weaken the stream so that the beavers could then build more permanent dams. That is so brilliant. It's like they're building a beaver home foundation, like pouring the concrete, you know? So exactly. Did it work? So to find out, that's why I was there. I went to meet Chris and Gus at the exact same spot that Oregon field guide had filmed with Chris back in 2009 to see how things had changed. Sites are just right downstream. It's like, yeah, that's it. So we're Chris had installed the BDA. We actually found an enormous dam that is overgrown with willow and cattails. I don't know, somewhere in here. Chris actually has to dig through the plants to find the tops of the BDA posts, which are now pretty much completely buried. By beaver excellence, incredible, incredible. So the beavers took advantage of those BDA starter structures, the biologists set in the stream. They sure did because those BDA's did what they're supposed to do. They slowed the stream enough for the beavers either to build on top of them or to build another dam like 5 feet away because they're saying, you know, you people don't know it. And it caused a big change. There was an 8 fold increase in the number of dams in the study area. 8 times the number of beaver dams, that's a huge increase. How did that change the creek itself? This was really, really cool to see because it's just a huge transformation. All those dams slowed the water and they backed up the silt which created this string of pools. And then the beavers dug canals out to clumps of delicious willows so that they could swim back the branches to their lodge. And then that spreads water out even further, which allows more plants to grow year round in places that were previously too dry for them. And now beaver control the hydraulics. So really after just 12 years, what had been this narrow little creek with a little bit of willow running tightly on either side of it had transformed into this wide dense wetland that's now home to all sorts of plants and animals. What's amazing about this solution is it's actually working in partnership with beavers. And the brilliant thing is, is they do it for free. We just pay them with some willow. And it's particularly great in the current drought because you look at these beaver wetlands and they're really like giant sponges that are just storing water and releasing it slowly out onto the land. I'm getting really hyped on the beaver dams and it's easy to forget what this is really all about. Ultimately, what it will do for our fish Friends, right? The salmon and the steel head. How did this change the creek for them as a breeding ground? So let's go back to our fishing biologists. And I'll let them show you. Yeah. After a couple hours of collecting, Eliza kexi in the team stopped a measure way and tagged the fish. So that way, each fish has an individualized ID. And so we can develop their life history and estimate abundance. And then we can also look at survival and production. So in the last decade, after putting in these BDA's, which coaxed the beavers to build dams, Erin, what happened to the fish population? Did it bounce back? It did. It's Gus said at the beginning, it was a fish party. The average number of juvenile fish in the study area increased by almost a 180%. And their seasonal survival rate increased by 50%. Did this project exceed expectations? I mean, it kind of revolutionized the way that we think about beavers and cause this seismic shift where beavers went from pests that we wanted to remove. Departments who can help us as we restore ecosystems across the west. And so it's now so widely accepted that even the government will fund landowners to build BDA's on agricultural land as part of its conservation strategy. Chris Jordan says that there are now hundreds of these projects, not just in America, but worldwide. Right? And this is what happens when you follow up a decade later on an ecology project. Aaron, thank you for checking in on this creek and telling us what the beavers did to help save the salmon. Absolutely. Thank you for climbing over some dams with me.

Dog King: Burnt Bun Breakfast

"Today. We find dog king king of the dogs sitting on his throne gazing out at his kingdom out in the streets. The sun was hot and humid. As a pool of drool and the roads were scorched enough to skull the paw humans were bustling around head down headed to work and traffic clogged up all the best walking spots. That was all okay though because the kingdom the alley behind the laundromat was shady and cool as the dirt under a deck and more than that. It was a summer monday which could only mean one thing time for a burnt bun breakfast dog king called spilling too heavy trash bags into the crowd of waiting dogs from the bags. Wrinkly crinkly sides burnt hot dogs and hamburgers and stale buns spilled onto the dirty ground. It was kind of like christmas. If christmas smelled like ketchup and mustard day-old meet burnt bun. Breakfast was their summer monday tradition. Where the dogs gathered all the burnt barbecue thrown out from the weekend before and had themselves a feast. A whole mess of matz had shown up for this one. There was the usual crew of pickles and rambo. And anne plus some lounging. Labs hungry hounds.

Doctors Are Relying More on Monoclonal Antibodies to Fight COVID

"For Covid 19 is showing a great deal of progress. David Begnaud reports from hard hit Louisiana monoclonal antibodies, lab grown proteins that help the body target and eliminate covid infection, according to Dr Thomas Galit, chief medical officer at ST Francis Medical Center in Monroe, Louisiana. They have become the most effective therapy yet has done a great job of helping high risk patients stay out of the hospital. The therapy is becoming more available at hospitals and clinics around the country. But it is only administered after infection within 10 days of the first symptoms and before those symptoms get to severe what type of sickness do you usually say that's too sick to receive if they are having profound oxygen requirements continued high grade beavers dehydration. Since July. The first we've given about 1700 doses. One of those doses went to 42 year old Scotty Johnson. We were there when he got his infusion three weeks ago in Monroe, as Covid was attacking his body. It feels like somebody's choking you. You start coughing, but nothing comes out this week. We followed up with him and we met his wife, Meg. They both got the antibody treatments right around the same time. I just really start feeling good about Three or four days ago, probably, but I feel like I'm like 90% now, while Scotty did not get the vaccine bag did my wife got anybody treatment? On Thursday. I tested positive on Friday. On Saturday, she was back up cleaning the house and doing dishes and like it never even bothered. While the antibody treatments can be effective, they are not a substitute for vaccines, says CBS News Medical contributor Dr David Agus. There's no question the vaccine is better than an antibody. But in the case where your immune suppressed and you can't make a good response to a vaccine, they're lifesavers. So this is an important part of our arsenal. But it certainly is not the only weapon in our arsenal. Vaccines are Front line. No question about it to fight a virus in today's world, and that

"Can we write some curriculum materials around that much of which has been done before by other conservation organisations. But you know again. The beaver is this systemic thing and it makes you think that way and i think that we've in this concept of the generational downgrade of expectation of our countryside. That we talked a little bit about earlier is something that we can help. Address so what should the contract late like we walk through it peaceful countryside accepting bland greenfield great scenery. No it's not. it should be way more. Diverse and enriched and there's really brilliant example going on sussex university at the moment called wild futures where they are giving sixteen twenty five year olds the opportunity to create their own vision of future landscape. That brings the pope right and you know. I think that beaver wetlands could probably stretch people's expectations. And i think children. How children are they get so excited about the beauty and wonder if the world and we need to tap into that. Yes we go a five year old grandson. Who's just is an entomologist i. He knows that he's been building buck hotels for specific bugs and he knows what they are. And it's amazing. Watching that sponge of brian just being stomach then somehow love the way as we go older we lose that capacity to system level bringing it back. I want to talk to someone the sixteen to twenty one year old building a better future because my understanding as a creator as a novelist as a if we don't give people a vision of the future could be. They will continue to accept a degradation of today as the only possible possible future. That's that's ultimately what climate leadership is about is building a vision for what could be better than how we can come through this with something worth living for. Yes how do we get to be reduced. Some where we actually want to go. And we're very very good at creating the handmaid's tale mad max obtain puzzle burning stars fire bigger nest your neighbors but not good at house future could be. We've got it right now. We need a running in moment now. He's good. But i think you say somewhere along the way just because i think it's really important this you say somewhere along the way we lose that school that kills at the moment is absolutely tragic. Because that's the case is trying to set us up for the future that we can't predict but it's completely wrong future and we've got this extraordinary capacity and children and talent creativity and we wash it. Yeah and so. There's something about rewarding children's childhood letting them be free and find out what the excites engages them and one of my colleagues nicky saunters is heavily involved in the arts. And she she. And i often have have these sessions thinking about how we can creatively engaged people through beavers. And it's often hard for other people to see how ought sessional davis is going to help make a difference. Connect that up with in the holistic thinking practical application of viva restoration. But it's important and it's again speaks to this now. I want to everything at once so hard. But you're doing you're doing such a lot and you said earlier in everyone in the room was one person which speaks then to the bigger problem is the problem of our political structures and our economic structures because part of who is doing is. It's best effort to turn out. People who are fit for economic to the disney of purpose. We don't need to go down that line too much..

"They're nervous system and that's something very special so in the dam-building building efforts they bring life and there's been a great science not just in this country but all across the northern hemisphere to show. How down building activities restore wetlands and create this beautiful mess. Wild wet habitat that used to be really commonplace before they act Revelation am what this habitat support is the most incredible almost unbelievable return of species in diversity and abundance which we've forgotten that used to exist in our landscape and to stand in a beaver wetland which they will create very short order. Nothing else is ever brought me as much hope for the future is doing that. And so and that was part of my decision to sort of move to this role but then times also help prevent cutting and drought. Sit down in the komo project. Christians is the former there who's seen a fifty percent reduction in flood peaks which is massive for the vintage living downstream For six years was flooded. Nearly an isn't so much anymore and again it's not going to resolve it completely but it's improving it. And then last year they had a visit from a counselor. Who said oh chris. You've got in the drought last year. Who said chris. I think you've got the last drop of water here. In his homes kind of the anecdotal sophist science to show important. They are and then they are firebreaks and they Filtered water they reduce our coach pollutants. How do they do that. I would that did the damn systems basically all filtration systems and they sediment sinks in the beaver ponds and it filters out again not one hundred percent but improve the water quality downstream. And what they do what. They tend to sutton headwaters this. These benefits all realize most often in headwaters wet beavis half to build a dam in order to create a depth of about a meter water so that they feel safe from predators ironically predators. That often don't exist anymore. Estate hiding wolves yes. That's why they do it and so downstream when rivers a A deeper anyway. They wouldn't do the dumbing they might borrow into banks and things like that so it's important to recognize that dot nonetheless. Those benefits and the potential is there an initial see the potential for the the wonder in the wilderness that could benefit people as well. And we've had people down cool beaver projects wellbeing practitioners bringing coins down because the incredible calming and uplifting response people have to being among the opponents which is really cool yes. So let's pick this little because there is there's so much in this it feels like it could be an entire coastal than its own. You could start. Be just podcast. I think that would be great. You don't have day we didn't. I missed i missed two ghadames right. I'll need to find a and i will link it in the show notes. I'll make myself not corporate cost and you'll love it. It's really excellent I was say. Let this but we won't logicast cats. And i will put something..

"Hey people welcome to accidental. God's to the podcast where we believe that another world is still possible and that together. We can make it happen. Amanda scott your host at this place on the web where art meets activism politics. Meets philosophy and science meets spirituality. All in the service of conscious evolution on my guest is week. Definitely stuttle's many of those points. Either bishop is a passionate environmentalist and climate activist. She's worked on large scale. Renewable energy programs run carbon offset schemes. Funded a major wetland conservation and catchment restoration initiative and developed a climate action app and materials for schools on echo initiatives. But we're talking to her today because even is the communications director for the beaver trust. I found the be trust on twitter. Scrolling through my was this picture of a small mammal in britain having been reintroduced. And i had this idea that. Keep furry mammals apex parts of some kind of ecosystem would be an interesting and inspiring podcast because bringing them bag is making major changes as you here to the uk landscape and other landscapes around the world. But actually what i discovered to. My absolute delight is that the beaver just is about reintroducing beavers but it is so much more than that everybody there understands the need for systemic change and has ideas and practical applications of how we can do this. The beavers are an integral part of this but they are a gateway into the much much larger chains that we need so this has been one of the most inspiring podcasts. We've ever done because it has answers. Here are people who are actually making a difference. So people to the podcast. Please do welcome. Even bishop of the beaver trust so even bishop of the trust and we just said either like beaver and i could not have that in welcome to the accidental.

"Let's be honest. The vast majority of americans their overweight. they're obese. we're talking not just like over fifty percent. We're talking the vast majority so what specifically is wrong. And how are you setting about to fix it. It's a great question. And getting into the business being savvy entrepreneurs i'd i i always encourage people to look deeply at the problem. You now think thinking through the obesity of damage. Most people are like. Oh it's personal choice. People just need to pick a salad instead of a mcdonald's big mac and if you look back over history going back to the eighty seventies and even sixties. We didn't have this problem in the united states. It's relatively new problem for us. And the transition that happened in society Which was a fantastic Transition that all of us are in full support of Was that women. Entered the workforce so there was no longer one major member of the household at home cooking three meals a day. Like leave it to beaver style You now have women working right alongside men fifty sixty plus hours a week like like my wife That created a environment in the economy. Where getting food quickly became the key. Thing that americans focused on and that in the late seventies and especially in the eighties and nineties led to the rise of fast food ultimately time became the big factor for people to eat and as that happened You know we started focusing less and less on You know on the health aspect cooking from home and all of those types of things when it comes to eating and more and more on the convenience of food so that was our fix with trifecta as we said how can we be more convenient than fast food.

Unfortunately no they do through yeah. How long do beavers live. I hope that he lives almost twenty years in captivity. They don't live quite as long in the wild of course because they're exposed to potential risks that they don't in captivity would imagine he can't run around loose otherwise your furniture would be chewed up.

"In the last day would pick up. We had an entrance in empty. Fresh shows all dry hay and grass and perfect. Was it a female you remember. I don't remember bit will don't remember she'd have been set up for that spring. I very rarely set an entrance to be a host. Because that's to me. That's oughta. I don't know why they allowed him to set entrances to be behind this but it but if you have an active beaver house that's shit active. You'll catch the catch beaver To to me it was. When i first started trapping i thought it was just the the height of trapping would be the ideal spot to sends right in the entrance to the house and in some places i think it is like when you have like a river again on the bank and they only got one way but the last couple years. I've screwed up a few times. And i've learned like i've walked all the way around the house and found two three entrances in set him up in open water and then also dig another one out. They they go one gets caught in they see that and they go around or they religious day and i was talking to one of the old timers around here and he said He said you know you. You catch him just as easily outta out further away and then you don't spook the rest of the beavers. I didn't really believe that. But i started. I started making sets. I found out something over the years. You don't have to move that trap. After you caught one or two beaver if you only move at five ten feet in a different spot. They'll they'll go back. Use that run and you'll catch him again but after catch one or two that run go dead. Okay they'll find another entrance or google of land but if you move it they forget as oh it's gone and that's something like furred as trappers..

I think that way i'm getting. Some sprung traps predatory springs them. And they're just going too fast it going which i'm glad you said some. Yeah we don't. I don't wanna skin want You mentioned something. That i thought was interesting about how they hug. Certain you think they hug decides to those. They hugged aside to everything. Mink the same thing. That's why that bought a major work so good from being audited. That's the same thing when they going around. Gotta bend inustry inside ben. They cut short everything they go. They save energy or whatever they cut so that. What you saying is if you're going to set your trigger to the side you want to set it on the hood. I think helps seven. They talking the inside your trapped less likely the trigger that makes sense write did send him. It doesn't matter because you've got to block there space or the run at just the width of kona beer. Yeah you you're going to catch him. I had that one in a duke. And i had it all the way to the edges. But it's still an animal filled that trap of course one traps fired off. They look bigger to but he was. It was a little bit. The sneak by in probably didn't take much just grazed it a little bit and i think sometimes motor play in when coming downstream could have watched them role. They they roll enroll. Roll just mess around. They're funny animal. And but yet when they go in upstream they'll avoid. You're going to be as more young pop out on snow. Their boat go round back no water. And they go overland landlocked when people. I watched a couple years city big order they were headed upstream and i had a beer dream. And i hit a crossover septa t s and they spotted me. They turn went the other way. And i was glad dry them this morning. I didn't get and it's majority males that were catching. I assume that you're the same way with you. Yet because the females although this year. I'm catching more females than i thought really rachel and that's a sign of a lotta oughta yeah. I caught when the population. That one. I got this morning was a female. The other two males so yeah. That's because this time of year the females are really the should be laying pretty low. What they are they're in. These will be houses abandoned yet getting ready to have the litter and they don't travel you know they they pick spot get some food so they can take care of the young pro l. Yeah because i think the meal order they have to protect the from. Yeah protecting your males. They don't leave them for quite a while. It's funny it. It really doesn't seem to take long for them to find those bannon beaver houses. I remember a couple years ago. I was trapping over to garfield. There is a place where a guy had this big big beaver houses flooded misfield. And actually i went in with alex. The kid you staying around here and trapped. We got ten beaver out of that house.

"Bucks and though those were mainly the eastern first-section beaver and in the western beaver didn't even sell so there just wasn't i don't think there is enough buyer interest to really have a true representation of price there however there was interest in beaver. Castor caster averaged about one hundred dollars a pound. It was amazing so the there were four grades a castor. There was one two three and then there is like what a western canadian so actor whatever they call it that select one hundred and twenty dollars a pound Then hundred ten for the grade one hundred for two in ninety for grade three Mike castor had two pounds in there and they averaged one hundred pound so i was super super super super. Super happy about that was great Those are the bright spots and then moving down the list. everything was kinda else was kind of disappointing. While mink seventy eight percent sold for five dollars and eighty three cents otter sixty percents sold for sixteen dollars. Forty four cents. That's just the it's it's really sad to see order that low Martin were martin. Were okay. They started to come back just a little bit. We saw averages of thirty to sixty dollars. They were sorted out by size in grade. And those Those alaskan martin ambassador. Canadian martin were fifty to sixty dollars Actually heard from a trapper in. Alaska averaged about forty so there were some variability there. I had one martin that was held over for a couple of sales and It was the only one. I had leftover there from the lot that i had had seven dollars there last year and i got thirty bucks for it so i i guess i can't complain fisher. Were disappointing. i had three or four fisher in the auction. And i think i averaged about eighteen bucks and the overall fisher average was sixteen dollars and fifty four cents so that was not good. Bob cat was interesting. So the western. Bob cats which are the top quality cats they have been going for you know around They were around three hundred box and then recently with the recent drops they were down around one hundred seventy five or so. I remember right those average two hundred so they weren't spectacular. They didn't bounce back to that. Three hundred where we've been in for quite a while Two hundred bucks. That was you know it. It was okay but the surprising part was the canadian in central. Bob gates averaged one hundred bucks so were averaging thirty to sixty dollars depending on the sale and those were a hundred so i don't know what's happening there but that was pretty cool to see it was It was good. It was very good. Candidate links averaged sixty seven dollars. Nothing to be excited about their. I mean they've bounced around a little bit between thirty and sixty as sixties still sixty seven still quite low for them. Raccoons most did not sell just a few sold in their average lower eight dollars. I soon those were some of the better coons and the rest of the first of the sale. Were pretty much same prices as the past couple of auctions so a little bit of encouragement..

fifty thirty bucks one hundred bucks five dollars sixteen dollars two pounds Two hundred bucks seven dollars Mike Forty four cents one hundred pound two hundred Three hundred three eight dollars last year thirty fifty four cents ninety first

"I tried one new important piece of equipment. That i've been working on here for the past few weeks and i finally got a prototype in place and i started using it. I call it the trapper. Pack so a couple of weeks ago. I talked about my frustrations with the traditional trapping. Pack basket whether it's the old school woven of ash wood material or the more somewhat modern fiberglass back baskets they got terrible strap systems and you cannot carry them very far one guy said the best thing the best thing to do with those is pulling the tell on the back of the pickup trucker on the rack of four wheeler. And it's true. I mean you don't wanna go far those straps terrible the in your shoulders. You can't carry much weight within the most uncomfortable thing that you can wear so i wanted something that was similar to the traditional well that more like the fiberglass pack basket something. That's open hard not to have something you can throw a bunch of traps in gear. You could all be resolved on But had more of a functionality like a modern day hunting pack with a waist belt and padded pathway spell padded shoulder straps Oh know more distributed weight and more functional in a more ergonomic and. I tried Doing that in any kind of retrofitting some straps in a few different situations. I did try that on a traditional on the the standard fiberglass pack basket that they sell in most trapping supply companies and that that worked for me. It's it's actually too short and so it doesn't fit the standard torso size to actually implement a waist belt system on in addition shoulder straps. So that didn't work. And i i looked everywhere to try to find something. Finally i found a container that was is still just a little bit undersized for what i'm looking for but was the closest thing i could find. It's a pretty durable like molded plastic type material. It almost feels like similar to teflon. All i don't know how strong it'll be out in this if it's left than the sun for a few years but for now it's been pretty awesome and i. I got some some really nice shoulder straps and waist belt and other straps. And i kind of retrofitted sort of A modern day. Pack system onto this onto this container and it's worked out awesome. I've had i been able to wear do some wear and tear on it and find the breaking points and i did find several and i've been working on fixing those and retrofitting that a little bit and and making some adjustments so so i want something that i can have five or six three thirty two hall into the swamp and build the hall to beavers out To to average size. Beavers are a big beaver small beaver. I've done that several times now at this thing and i've hauled him out The longest one probably about. It's not quite a quarter mile but it's close hone uphill so so. That was pretty good because i son of a gun back in. I can't remember what the was the pack wade. I did the pack with one beaver the other day and it was about forty five pounds and then I had a second beaver on the next day..

"How that all makes us so much nicer to have a trapping season during that time. It's just so much easier to catch. Animals they're moving their territorial and they come. They come into castor very easily. They just they. They happened along Upon your sets much more often and it's just it makes for some awesome trapping so the the guys the beaver guys that i talk about a lot They don't really wanna share much for numbers. But i'll tell you just a few days ago. There were over three hundred beaver so Just put it in perspective and and they hadn't. It's if they go to the end of the season they're not even halfway there They're able to get to a lot of areas that many times of year many years this time of year. it's still frozen and they. They never ended up getting there and also summer long. The towns down road departments and county highway department have a really hard time with beavers flooding roads and causing damage stuff But but this year they're able to get out there and harvest muchas beers during the season. So it should be interesting to see how that how that helps but anyway yeah. They're they're having a good season it. It's interesting that the numbers The beaver aren't aren't coming like crazy. But they're they're s- catching him pretty steadily. There's a lot of different factors that played into that. And we'll talk about that. As i talk a more more about my trap line but my goal was was obviously much different considering my personal life situation where i don't really have a lot of time to to trap and i can't take vacation time from work but i actually need that time to to work on the farm. And then when you have the you throw in the occasional trip to alaska that eats up over a year's worth of vacation time right there. So i just can't do that and can't really just go all before and after work i'll trap because before and after work i also have other duties other things to work on as well so so i what i decided was..

Odds is in the sweet sixteen in number fifteen oral roberts upset number seven florida. Paul mills against all odds is in the sweet sixteen dead-leg makes sense. What in the world is going on in indiana. You want me to make sense of this. No shot and need you to make some sense. I'm not gonna make any sense of this. It's been a gloriously. Chaotic and we are knocking on the door of historic and double a. tournament so with these Upsets in addition to others. First of all eight teams from eight separate leagues are now into the sweet sixteen and with the other obviously on monday The most is that could If that could happen Also we have had so the instable a and shops the david warlock who's obviously the media coordinator of all the stuff. He tweeted this about twenty five minutes before we started podcasting so we define an upset as a team seeded five spots or more lower than their opponent we've already set the record with eleven such occurrences were midway through the second round. We have the so another way of saying that is. We're not done the second round yet. The already been eleven games in which a team separated by. At least five seed lines have seen the team lower seeded when it is history. And it's it's just wild man. I actually think we're also on pace. I haven't had time to research this but are. Cbs sports hq team is researching it. I think we are probably on pace. Because of this to have the highest collective number for all the seeds meaning like we've got fifteen in their plus a twelve and oregon state plus eight with loyal. If you get what. I'm saying like when we get to the sweet sixteen. If you add up all the seeds it's going to be the highest total we've ever had there and i can't make any sense of it. I don't know if because like if we'd had this enormous setting with fans and stuff would it be the same. No i mean every single tournament x exists unto itself. If you played this thing again you're going to have all sorts of different kinds of results but is it because it's happening in the pandemic in one location in the venues it's happening at is that allowing for more chaos. I'm i can't say that. It is and i can't say that that's not the reason so i'm loving this parish. Get enough of all of this. Although i will say Oregon state is maybe the most random and congrats to the beavers man. It's the most of sweet sixteen. Maybe ever this team was nowhere.

"Today says Johnson and Johnson's single shot Corona virus vaccine Meets emergency requirements. ABC is Mark Rommel are joins us on the co Moh news line. What's this going to mean? Mark and how effective is this one shot vaccine compared to the others? Yes. So this is another step in the process of getting an emergency use authorization for this. The FDA and then they're scientists of essentially looked at the data and said exactly that it appears safe and effective. Now it will go to an independent review board on Friday who will scrutinize the data and make a determination or a recommendation to the FDA about what they think if they think that this vaccine should be approved or given some kind of Emergency authorization and then finally, the decision rests with the FDA to make that call. But what we understand from the data from Johnson and Johnson, as well as what the FDA said today is that there appear to be no major safety concerns with this, that the common side effects or what we've heard with other vaccines who like beavers, fatigue, headache pain at the site of injection, and then it's 66% effective overall at preventing moderate to severe Cove in 1985%, effective at preventing the most serious illness from Covert 19. And so while that does not reach up to the levels of the fighter and Madonna vaccines at 95%, effective at preventing you from getting covert 19 that even in and of itself could be significant in reducing strain on hospitals and the health care system, Because even if people could get this one does, and you know, maybe you get mildly sick from covert 19. That's still a lot better than ending up in the hospital or potentially dead from covert 19. So it does appear to meet the standards that the FDA is looking. Before in terms of safety and efficacy.

We're replaying an episode about the statue that first aired back in june. The athletics audrey snyder spoke with me. About why penn state has gone to such great lengths to conceal the statues location and which she discovered in her own quest to find it from wondering athletic. I'm could beat the davidson and this is the lead so audrey. it's been almost ten years since. Joe paterno at penn state. What is the state of their football program. Today penn state right now is consistently tap. Fifteen program tackles still on his feet. Smoke with a straight on touchdown. This is a team. That's been the new year's six games in three of the past four years. This is a team. That's at a high level of benefit prospects and it's almost easy to forget where this program was just because of how quickly it's it's found itself on the rebound so the reason we're here today. The joe paterno statue which became a huge source of contention in the aftermath of the jerry. Sandusky scandal can you describe in back in those days the providence of the turner statue on campus. It was a really big deal. There was one stop many fans had to make before they went into beaver stadium to watch the game. Whenever we come to penn state. We never failed to stop by and have our picture taken here. Embodies a man. It is the bronze statue of joe. Paterno who's a seven foot nine hundred pound bronze statue. There were thousands upon thousands of graduation photos of kids in caps and gowns underneath. Joe paterno as he has his barons pointer finger extended in the air and it was just such a landmark and walk us through what it was like when the statue came down with authorities are on site this morning at penn state prepping to bring down joe paterno statue. Employees have begun to place fencing around the statue and a tarp state college and university. Police are on the scene right. Your i've learned morning defense up around statue about thirty police. Officers walk out of beaver stadium surround. The statue was done like a surprise by six o'clock in the morning on a sunday people were already wondering what happened to this statue and where it went and for so many fans. The removal of the statue made it look like joe paterno was guilty and so many people who are looking at this story a locally they see a statue coming down and they say well clearly this isn't mission of joe paterno skills and that honestly that's something in the court of public opinion that's continued to play out but turnover reported to people will counteract that and say well. He didn't do enough. He should've done more. He should have followed up with more statue was so symbolic of a whole era owes penn state football. That was being taken down while the litigation was still ongoing so it made it looked like one thing which of course angered a lot of fans. A lot of alumni makes me very angry There are a couple of things going on first of all. We don't know all the facts. Seems like we keep making knee jerk reactions to your say where caving to pressure because now looked like hence status jumping to conclusion based off of the free report former. Fbi director louis. Freeh puts the blame on joe paterno and three other top penn state officials for covering up jerry sandusky child-sex-abuse but you also had a chance that that because of what had happened with jerry sandusky with sensitivity with compassion for his victims. How can you keep a statue up of a head coach. Who at the time had a defensive coordinator who was sexually abusing young boys. I mean it was just so complicated and the thing in all of this was chopra. Paternal never particularly liked the statue. It shows with this bronzed finger looking like he's giving the number one pose which was like so anti turnover in that it made. It looked like he was boasting but so many people were clinging to the statute because it was their connection to joe paterno in that penn state era of football that they knew in loved. But you then wonder like. Should we ever put statues of anyone. Can you celebrate a person in only honor part of them or does a statue represents kind of this all encompassing being. And that's what makes it so risky when he decided to put a statue like this up because even when this thing came out in two thousand and one show paternal is legacy everything. It looked bulletproof so

Barry Lopez, Acclaimed Author And Traveler Beyond Many Horizons, Dies At 75

"National book award winner berry lopez was famous for chronicling his travels to remote places and the landscapes he found there but his writings weren't simply account of his journeys they were reminders of how precious life on earth is an our responsibility to care for it. He died after a long battle with prostate cancer just months. After a wildfire forced him from his oregon home he was seventy five years old. Npr's dave blanchard has this remembrance berry lopez spent more than thirty years writing his last book horizon. He don't spend that much time on a project without going through periods of self doubt when i met him at his home last year he told me when he was feeling defeated by the work. He'd walk along the nearby mckenzie river. Every time i did there was a beaver. Stick in the water at my feet. And they're of course their workers. So i imagine the beaver were saying. What the hell's wrong with you. You get back in there and do your work up. In his studio he had a collection of the stakes are little tooth marks. It was a lesson for lopez. Every day i walked in that room. I saw the signs of. Don't lose in yourself. This was the world of barry. Lopez beaver could teach you the most valuable lessons. Lopez was born in new york but his father moved the family to california when he was a child. Hugh eventually settle in game. Notice for his writing about the natural world he win the nineteen eighty-six book award for nonfiction. Work arctic dreams at the time he told npr how he approached the seemingly empty arctic environment. I made myself pay attention to places where i thought nothing was going on. And then after a while the landscape materialized in a in a fuller way denied. I imagine that at first glance in lopez books. A cloudy sky contains grays of pigeon feathers of slate in pearls packs of hammerhead sharks in the galapagos. Move like swans million a city park pond composer john. Luther adams was a friend and collaborator of lopez. For nearly four decades he says lopez writing serves as a wake-up call. She surveys the beauty of the world. And at the same time the cruelty and violence that we humans inflict on the earth and on one another and he doesn't with deep compassion lopez experienced that cruelty first hand as a child. He was sexually abused by a family. Friend he i wrote about it in two thousand thirteen. He later told. Npr experience made him feel afraid and shameful around other people. The animals encountered in the california wilderness. Offered something different. They didn't say oh. We know what you went through. I felt accepted by the animal world. Lopez would spend his life writing about that world in particular the damage done to it by climate change. That hit home for lopez. This past september much of his property was burned in wildfires tore through oregon partly due to abnormally dry conditions. His wife deborah gordon says he lost decades of notes and correspondence and much of the forest around the home where lopez had lived for fifty years. He talked a lot about climate change in. And how it's so easy to think it's going to happen to other people and not to you but it happened to us. It happened to him personally. And i think that the fire was just a blow. That not just couldn't quite ever get back from when i spoke to lopez last year. He said he always sought to find. Grace in the middle of devastation is so difficult to be a human being. There are so many reasons to give up to retreat into cynicism or despair. I hate to see that. And i i want to do something that makes people feel safe and loved and capable in his last days. His family brought objects from home to him in hospice. Among the items the beaver stakes from his studio dave blanchard. Npr news

"There was a bit of a damn just Downstream of this bridge and the Beavers were the beaver or beavers were moving around pretty good. But I only really had one good spot to set a foothold drowning set tsat V, which is what I did there were really no narrow. There was only one place I could say 3:30. It was a side-channel. There's kind of come down the road ditch and entered the stream just above the bridge. And you could see where Beaver was moving up into that channel to to feed and had a few cut trees and stuff and pulls in that channel. So I set a 3:30 that channel just under water and then I set the right by the road kind of the the road embankment. Just next to the bridge I set that off is 85 hind foot catch set with again. I had the same thing. I had a stick Popple and Birch River Beaver lower there on a slide wire down in about eight feet of water heading back down. I had a couple of other spots, but I actually I didn't set those up write that down cuz I kind of ran out of time but I had to other spots one that my friend had told me about it was right on the main road and I thought the ADC guys would be all all over it wage. But he said the Beavers were in there. So I I stopped and I looked in the dam was broken. There was I don't know six or eight foot maybe a ten-foot breach in the damn and I I was quite sure that the ATC guy had gone in and breached that damn but I didn't see any traps or anything. So all right moved on and then I I kind of just oh, I did stop at one other issue and there was this road was flooded and there's this swamp area that has always had Beaver problems in it. It's perennial the last thirty years almost every year. There may be the problem there in the ADC guys going kill the beavers and more beavers move in. So the Beavers with the high-water had moved in there and they this one there was a pickup trucks that drove by me as I was checking that out and get ready to set it that was incredibly frustrating. It's a main road. There's lots and lots of bird Hunters around and down. I made two or three Thirty sets and they were both on the extreme edges there. Actually, probably two hundred yards apart believe it or not. That's how wide this area was where the road was flooded, but I made him way in the corners kind of on the edge where hopefully no one would see and I figured the ADC guy was going to be there cuz there's water lots of water running over the road. So I I wasn't too concerned about about whether or not I'd get to be over there. I wasn't too confident, but that way so I bogeyed on home and a few days later. I I went back to check this out. So the very first location was that Culvert and that larger stream and I had the four sets there and the very first set which was the test5 hindfoot catch sets. Nothing. Nothing had touched it. Nothing to go into it, which is kind of surprised me. I went to the 3:30 is I thought for sure I'd have bought one of the three Thirty s nothing both 330s were just as they had been sat so nothing moved through those channels and I get to the back side of the house and that little peninsula where they've been coming up on Thursday and and I boom I had a beaver there. So I had a nice good-size beaver in the hind foot cup of the hind foot and that drowning set and the t s a t v..

"I mean a lot of you might not think you know the last 10 days of October that the pellets would be any good there you'd be surprised the quality of the pelts for this time of year. I mean, you know, you're not talking about wage January or February beaver pelt but they're they're good. I mean you can do a lot with these and I'm really I've been really satisfied really happy with them. So long the you got the carcasses you get the the meat you got the pelts also, you know other Beaver other stuff the beaver the the caster and that was a big part of my decision because I'm starting to make a little bit of this floor and sell it and so I I've been buying some Beaver Castor, but I don't I would kind of like to walk Catch it because it's kind of expensive to buy and so I'm I'm trying to to sort of catch more beavers so I can have enough kastor to make a little bit of lore that I'm selling off. So it all kind of came together. So this is what I was going to do get ahead and get some beaver sets in and and do all that and and be ready for the the main General trapping season that starts tomorrow. Well one little kink in our plans was that between the 1st of June off and about the middle of September here in northern Maine. We had the driest summer ever on record since I don't know when they've been keeping records. It's been probably a hundred years or so. So everything is basically basically dried up here and beaver were nowhere to be found. I talked to the girl. Guys the road guys out in the woods that are constantly dealing the town guys constantly dealing with Beaver problems this summer. They didn't have Beaver problems. There was just no water the beaver disappeared. I was scouting I was looking around I couldn't find Beaver anywhere. I mean, we've been amazed myself and a few other people I've been talking with and that the lack of any active Beaver activity in the miles and miles and miles that we've driven..

"Those wet. Environments are going to hold that carbon for a long period of time. Beavers also provide habitat from every level of a food chain Animals need water. They come down to metro systems to drink into eat other animals birds and all different things. So Wildlife Habitat groundwater storage so humans could also see benefit from having you know bieber our dams basically in the upper watershed. You're holding water for longer periods of time so that it's a slow release into our cities and through the into the ocean that the benefits. I mean I could go on and on it. There's so many benefits to having beaver dam logs or having beaver dams in a system. Well I think I'm sold and restoration. We often talk about a reference condition or trying to move back to what a landscape previously looked like. What kind of documentation is out there for restoring these sites so when when I look at an area to restore. We will look at historical imagery and so there is a good amount of historical imagery that we can look at but we'll also walk the system so in a in a particular watershed you're going to have in most systems. You're going to have areas. That are degraded and you're GONNA have areas. That are actually looking pretty good still in those areas that we call reaches. There's some some time small areas of that watershed. So we'll walk the entire stream or river system to find these reference resources and we'll we'll assess them. We'll see how deep the channel is how it's interacting with the flood plain and we look at those and then we can model that so we try to bring the whole system back to that reference reach. You know there's different indicators. Also that we look look at so if we see old railroads or or roads or other evidence of human manipulation than we can say okay. We see evidence here clearly before this was implemented. This system was different. And then you know we can. We can look at other areas that weren't or didn't have roads railroads or different impacts and we can see that that difference and compare the two so there's definitely reference material out there that we before we go into an area great also read stories about people digging old beaver dams in the middle there like agricultural field. And it's just amazing to hear about those kinds of things that just persist throughout time and there's always ways to find out what used to be there right absolutely. So what is the historic or current range of BIEBER's in the United States? Yes the historic range is really. It's most of the United States. It's GONNA exclude or of North America. It's going to exclude the northern reaches of Canada Mexico and the desert of southwest United States and Florida. But how I like to think of where a beaver would be is. Beavers need healthy watersheds healthy ripe Burien low gradient so doesn't have a lot of slope. They need these areas in order to be safe from predators so a beaver is going to need rypien trees to eat and to build their lodges and dams and in order to have those right period trees. That system needs to be healthy. So the channel can't be highly incised would be what I mean by. That is the main part of the channel is actually cutting into the earth. And it's no longer connecting to the flood. Plain in a regular flood event that inhibits right pairing trees from being able to grow. And so then you're going to take away habitat from the BIEBER and without those trees they're not gonna be able to create their dams which is what can help protect them from predators. Those dams are able to create that shallow water. They stay under the water and so they're able to hide. That's the main thing to think about is. Where would it beaver be? They're not going to be in the high mountains where streams are really Stephen. They're moving quickly. And maybe there's just some conifers and they're not gonNA be in deserts because those repairing trees are essential for their diet and for creating the dams and they're not going to obviously be some sort of Tundra Environment. The really a healthy low gradient right pairing area with those deciduous right. Perry and trees is what they need. And then they would thrive in most United States. So that kind of begs. The question in Beaver Dam analogs be employed in areas. Where it's only expected colonization. Or are there instances where it's created for artificial mimicry? I think ultimately we're going to create these beaver Dam analogs. The best thing is that we can have recolonisation by Bieber's and so when I when we build beaver dam logs were also going to plant willows up downstream from the beaver dam and we need to recreate that habitat. Otherwise they're not gonNA move into the area so the ultimate goal is to have beavers reestablished. There's other goals you know. Different agencies like the in California. They're putting their bound of money and investment into restoring watersheds for water storage and water quality And those reasons and so we can build beaver dam analogs without needing BIEBER's to come into the area and we'll see benefits. Is You know many benefits. But without the beaver we're going to need to maintain these dams so beaver dam. Analogs are not solid concrete structures. And they require me gets so without the beaver we need to make sure that the land owner or the agency understands that we need to revisit the dams maybe even yearly for a quick. You know touch up on that damn so in engaging the community to ensure that the dams are staying. Functional is an important piece of it if we can't bring the B-brian but also for those right Perrin trees to become mature and attractive for beavers. A take some years so we built a beaver dam. We plant some trees. We may have to wait several years for that area to be attractive. Enough for a beaver. We're still learning how they kind of sniff out help healthy habitats. I'm not one hundred percent. Sure how they do it but it but they do. They actually can move over mountain ranges and so if we can recreate these healthy habitats they may actually come into the area by themselves without us actually bringing them into that area all of the time I hear about people building Bieber Dame analogs and they're concerned because there's no colonization but I like to remember that were just a blip in the time scale and they don't follow our monthly schedules so Bright Ryan Bill Building. These structures is really fun maintaining them as fun and engaging with the community and educating people on the benefits and the landowner I think landowners can become beavers in a sense they can go out and fix the dams themselves or they can have people in the community come out and they can see the benefits but ultimately yes we do want that recolonisation in order for these things to be self sufficient. Well where do you see the future for? Bda's going okay. Well what I can. I see this exploding and I it's been going all over. The western United States has been really gaining momentum. People are realizing the low cost of creating these structures. A lower risk involved is allowing these to explode and were seeing landowners who would typically not be wanting either on their properties. Starting to come around and say wow. I can actually see the benefit if we if we work with nature. We work with beaver. I can actually have better feed for my cattle and there's different strategies that landowners who are are grazing are doing different things on their land. We can work with that. You can rest an area. You can move the cattle so that they're not hammering an air of certain area really heavily and those landowners are seeing that their their grass is growing really strong without irrigation. Because we're bringing that groundwater up when we build damn bringing the groundwater up and that spreading out of going to water all of their their grass or even crops so if you're if they're not doing cattle-grazing also a benefit if people are just growing Alfalfa or different things for for Hay and different crops. So there's lots of benefits ice. I see this continuing to grow. People are becoming more comfortable with it so the future is really bright for this encouraging to see here. Can you speak to the usefulness of these types of projects? Absolutely so like I was saying they're cost effective. A lot of watershed restoration. Projects can be very expensive using heavy equipment A lot of diesel and these structures are built with manpower were using hand. Tools were out with shovels and using post pounders so it's really cost effective so that's useful. In order to expand increase the pace in scale restoration. We talked about this. A lot in restoration and money is a big hindrance to increasing pay scale but if we can engage our communities get people out there. I could go out there and I could have a team of volunteers. Just one person who knows how to build it and a team of volunteers and we could build hundreds of beaver dams in a matter of months if I had a good team if you were to try and restore that large of a system using heavy equipment it's GonNa take millions of dollars so cost. Effective is one thing it's going to have less compaction impacts on the metro systems it kind of ties into the benefits and why they're important. There's just so many benefits to restoring watersheds mean birds and endangered species. One in particular. The Willow Flycatcher is a species that requires that healthy ripe. Paren- HABITAT and seeing credible benefits from rain beaver. Back in a restoring the system is that really echoes sentiments found in light. Low process-based restoration..

"Like minded friend. We are now on apple podcast. Google play Stitcher spotify among others. If there is a specific APP that you use let us know and we are happy to expand. My name is Shawn row and welcome to episode three about the BEAVER. Episode is all about Beaver Dam analogs or BDA's as I will no doubt be switching back and forth with the acronym. We'll be going over some information about beavers. The history of impacts in the United States and the concept of beaver Dam analogs and how it relates to low tech process-based restoration. We also have an interview with Garrick. Stelo from symbiotic restoration about. Bda's so here we go. Beavers are an interesting animal. Love him or hate him. They are interesting caster candidates in the order. Rhodesia or beavers as they are more commonly known typically breed once a year and hold large stream. Side territory their mostly nocturnal made for life and babies can swim. Within twenty four hours of birth they have specialized digestive system that helps with the Diet of Tree Bark and Cam which is the soft tissue under the bark of a tree. The largest beaver dam is reportedly located in Wood Buffalo National Park in Alberta Canada. It is two thousand eight hundred feet and his visible from space. Beavers are a wonderful example of a keystone species a keystone species is an organism that supports a biological community a keystone species commonly supports the integral processes of a natural trajectory. We have been using these species as the flag bearers of restoration for a long time. Think of salmon the top two searches when I entered beavers and Google are are beavers mean and our beavers bad for the environment that really speaks to the modern mindset. These beavers Beaver Dam analogs are human created designs that mimic the function of a beaver dam. They try to recreate the parameters for suitable beaver habitat with the hopes that beavers will come back and colonized the area. They are appealing because of their low-cost nature and large scale restorative impact. But they are also controversial. Beavers have not been on good terms with landowners or industry. In general it is interesting process because it aims to restore the hydrological processes that are missing and works on ground up basis. Once you have ideology back in an area the rest hopefully follows if you build it will. They come is a great question. Alternative and traditional design includes engineered slopes with meanders and great controls. That do not necessarily bring back those hydrological processes to the standards that were in place before a European American attempted beaver. Extrication if you WANNA know a more in detail description of beavers in the United States. I highly recommend the book written by Ben Goldfarb eager the surprising secret life of Beavers. And why they matter. Beavers have done a wide variety of activities that lead to a bad reputation dropping trees on cars ruining golf courses flooding homes flooding businesses in other instances a property damage. But this is due to our consistent attempts to build and repairing corridors and intrude on the beavers territory beavers are deeply entwined within the history of the United States. The problematic notion of manifest destiny fueled by for trapping and carving out forty acres was also the product of digging Daikin and draining wetlands. How could we not be at odds with beaver with the encouragement of European settlement? We found ourselves in a landscape where wellings dried up erosion was widespread stream and waterways and other features were drastically altered. I enjoy how Ben. Goldfarb draws the parallel between humans and beavers he says Homo Sapiens and caster candidates are among our closest ecological and technological kin homo sapiens and Cassar. Candidiasis are both wildly creative tool users. Who SETTLED NEAR WATER? Sheriff honest for elaborate infrastructure and favor. The Fertile Valley Bottoms carved by low gradient rivers. It's no wonder why we as a culture found ourselves at odds. Those beaver industrial complexes verse Human Industrial Complexes would world. We haven't always been enemies though. Humans have had past adventures at beaver. Restoration Albeit. I believe these. Beavers were taken from instances a conflict and rerouted into other locations so maybe not restoration. In the real sense of the word. There are videos that can be found online. That looked to be more like informational. Psa type videos illustrating on how they would parachute beavers in a remote wilderness areas. I'll put a link to that in the show notes. So here's some interesting. Facts about beavers. Dried beaver testicles were used as contraception once upon a time. I don't think that worked out real for any party. Involved though beavers can hold their breath for fifteen minutes they have transparent eyelids that allow them to see below water. A poet once described feminine beauty to that of the wool of beaver. There is a creek creation story about the great beaver so moving on geographers at Texas State University and the University of Iowa reported that North America used to have somewhere between fifteen to two hundred and fifty million beaver ponds before Europeans. That is a large range considering the legendary trapping and for trade the happened in North America. I am more inclined to believe the estimate should be on the higher end of that. The beaver dam analog concept came from the Bridge Creek intensively monitored watershed project in Oregon. Pollick at all two thousand seven has a paper discussing. Bda's they were originally called beaver dam support structures and they were using fencepost for temporaries ability. Anna branch solutions does a great job on their website. Explaining the history and concept of how the complex is more important than individual beady. There's only to the pollock paper. Anti Anna Branch solutions in the show notes as well. We've analogs have been quite the hot topic in recent years. They are a great example of low tech process-based restoration of river escapes. If you want more information on LOW-TECH PROCESS BASED DESIGN UTAH State University Restoration consortium as a design manual with guidelines for implementing a subset of low tech tools less includes BDA's and post assisted log structures. I've included a link to Utah State University website in the show notes as well beaver dam analogs have become. Something of a craze is quickly becoming one of the most use techniques and restoration through areas that are suitable. The allure is that of cost however regulators are still skeptical of these projects and we are still at odds with the beaver from national perspective. Just a couple years ago the. Usda was involved in more than twenty three thousand beaver death that were determined to be nuisances at the beginning of the twentieth century. Estimated that less than one percent of beavers were left comparative historic numbers according to an article by Sarah Koenigsberg. Courtesy of beaver believers without beavers. We see streams becoming eroded incised in ecologically damaged. The hardest thing that stomach is that we just don't have the data or knowledge to understand. What was there? Historically our best bet in these instances is to look to nearby reaches that were not impacted. Those are few and far between or to rely on traditional ecological knowledge from indigenous histories. Something we still fail to incorporate a large portion of restoration strategies on a brighter note there is a stage zero project in England that introduce beavers. Which was extirpated more than four hundred years ago? I really enjoy getting behind. Low Tech process-based design because of the fact that outright tries to restore processes and that is really what we want and restoration to bring back the processes and mechanisms that allow for self sustaining habitats. I spoke with Gary Castillo from symbiotic restoration based in northern California and his passion and Work Beaver Dam analogs. So let's give it a listen and learn about another tool in the box that we can implement to restore our wild scrapes all right welcome back to the resonant restoration podcast today we are interviewing Garrett and we will get to hear about the wonders that are as Beaver Dam analogs so garret. Do you want to introduce yourself sure? Yeah so my name's Gary Castillo The owner of symbiotic restoration where a stream metal restoration consultants in northeastern California. I went to Humboldt State University's In studied restoration and environmental management. I've been doing working on. Beaver dam analogues for the last five years. And it's it's a passion of mine. I actually I dream of it almost weekly because of I've got the beaver brain so I'm definitely invested in this process and excited to have this interview with you. Yeah we're excited to have you. So what led you into the field of restoration. Is that something you've always dreamed of doing or is that a recent? Yeah so I I grew up in Hawaii and so I was outside a lot and I think that is what led me to just the passionate of loving the outdoors is what led me to wanting to protect and then furthermore restore the environment so just recreation probably was the thing that drove me to restoration being outside enjoying hiking and canoeing. And you know just the natural wonders that we have in this world led me to wanting to to give back and make a career out of it also. I moved to northeastern California and I started working for Todd sloat for his creek restoration and when I started working for him. It really solidified my desire to have this as a career and I learned a lot in that process so it really kick started by business and getting me gone with a beaver dam analog be restoration watershed restoration awesome. Yeah sounds like we had similar stories growing up and getting into the natural. Yes so can you explain what? Bda's are yes. So beaver dam analogs. They're basically were trying to mimic a beaver dam. And so we're not as good as beavers. I'll actually say that so. Beavers are the ultimate restoration. They're wonderful engineers and the best part about having them do. The work is that they stay on site where I have to go home and feed my cats and and do the rest of my life. Humans can also play a role in helping to bring the beavers back to the area. So that's why we build these beaver dams is that ideally help. Bring the beavers back into an area that is maybe not healthy enough and we'll get into that later in the interview for why we're having to go into these areas but yeah basically they're just human made beaver dams is great. The field of restoration is definitely seen a lot of attention towards beaver dams. In the last I would say ten years. They seem to pop up every conference. I go to. What is the importance of beaver? Dams in a human world or natural world so beavers there keystone species and beavers help maintain healthy watersheds so the importance of having beaver dams and beavers. A system are there numerous You're going to be able to to keep the water in a system connected to the flood plain and so in a normal flood event. You'RE GONNA have water spreading out across a meadow landscape and that's going to bring numerous benefits. Water storage water quality You're GONNA have vegetated..
