An Ode to Beavers

This week, the Terra Informers get together to sing our praises for North America's largest rodent.

Have you ever come face to face with the majestic beaver? Have you ever thought about just how impactful the little dam-builders are to the ecosystems they inhabit? This week, Sara Chitsaz, Hannah Cunningham, and Dylan Hall (a Terra Informa alum!) discuss Glynnis Hood's book The Beaver Manifesto, as well as our general thoughts about the popular, and sometimes not-so-popular, rodent. At the end of the episode, Sara also gives us a run-down on what beavers have been up to in the Alaskan tundra.

Link to the University of Alberta's free online Indigenous Canada course, as mentioned in the introduction of the episode.
