Beavers are “ecological and hydrological Swiss army knives” and “one of our most triumphant wildlife success stories.”

Exactly this. From book description: ” Eager is a powerful story about one of the world’s most influential species, how North America was colonized, how our landscapes have changed over the centuries, and how beavers can help us fight drought, flooding, wildfire, extinction, and the ravages of climate change. Ultimately, it’s about how we can learn to coexist, harmoniously and even beneficially, with our fellow travelers on this planet”
