You are invited to listen to the contribution of Tatjana Gregorc from the Lutra Institute – about how beavers live, how they can adapt to their environment and how they can help us adapt to climate change!

You can listen to the podcast on RTVSLO 1 or read the summary HERE.

“In fact, the beaver maintains and creates wetlands, which play a very important role in mitigating climate change. Wetlands act as a large sponge in the environment, which means that when there is a lot of precipitation, they retain excess water, but during a drought, this water remains available and thereby reducing the consequences of drought. At the same time, wetlands regulate the local microclimate, the environment cools, and they also play an important role in water purification, are an important habitat and also represent a very large carbon dioxide sink. “Presence of beavers, therefore, means more wetlands,” summarizes biologist Tatjana Gregorc. “
