Wild beavers to return to English rivers after 400 years with legal protection as native species

Around 400 years after humans wiped out beavers across the country, the species has been successfully brought back to specific sites in Britain, and following extensive monitoring, the government is now set to designate them a native species and allow them to repopulate in the wild.

The native species designation will mean the animals are legally protected and it will therefore be an offence to capture, kill, disturb or injure them or damage breeding sites or resting places without a licence from Natural England.

Biennale Podcast

Earlier this year, La Biennale di Venezia released a series of sneak peeks of the projects, laying out a bridge, or more appropriately, a pontoon, that leads us to the Biennale Architettura 2021 How will we live together?.

In a programme of five Podcasts, Curator Hashim Sarkis will shared his thoughts and reflections on the five scales of the 17th International Architecture Exhibition as seen through the city of Venice, its history, and the way it exemplifies the overlap between these five scales of living together: As One Planet, Across Borders, As Emerging Communities, As New Households, Among Diverse Beings.
