Associated Press Coverage on Beaver

Joe was interviewed  recently for a recent AP article by Phuong Le on the relocation of 'nuisance' beaver in the Yakima Watershed in Washington for use as a restoration tool. The article, 'Often Pesky Beavers Put to Work Restoring Streams' was picked up by many news outlets, and resulted in an interesting interview of Mel Babik on NPR's Weekend Edition titled 'Researchers Say Beavers Are More Than Simple Pests'. This is another promising example of getting the word out on beaver as a restoration partner.

The AP story was reported in the Washington Post, ABC News, NBC News, the Huffington Post among many other outlets.
