ABOUT OUR BEAVER PATIENTS
We currently have 3 beavers in our care. The first beaver came to us in the spring of 2019 from Bunn Creek as a baby, having been found orphaned. An attempt at fostering the beaver with another beaver family did not work out, but luckily another orphaned beaver came under our care shortly thereafter! This one was found stuck in the mud near a deceased sibling in Swan River. Eventually, these two became companions as they were similarly aged and we could house them together once we completed their initial examinations. They both were very small, weighing under 1kg when they arrived and they continue to grow and be housed together here on site!
They spent this last winter with us and we’re hoping they can be released next year! This spring, another beaver came to us from Portage la Prairie. It was found wandering alone on the side of the road and luckily had no serious injuries. This one is housed next to the other two in outdoor enclosures filled with enrichment like logs, branches and pools.
These three will remain with us another year or so as baby beavers in the wild would stay with their parents for up to 24 months!
As these beavers keep growing and developing their instincts, they are requiring more and more space to be able to thrive while in care at Wildlife Haven. We are currently raising funds to help cover the cost of their new outdoor enclosures.
