North American beavers, the largest rodents in North America and second-largest rodents in the world, are an important keystone species for freshwater habitats across North America, but are currently missing from much of their historic range - an absence are felt by the many species that co-evolved with beavers. In 2019 EPIC and our allies petitioned the California Fish & Game Commission to revise the rules under which beavers may be legally trapped, and threatened to sue Wildlife Services for their publicly-subsidized beaver killing program. In 2020 Fish & Game moved forward on our rulemaking petition, referring the petition to the California Department of Fish & Wildlife for review and comment. In 2022 Fish & Wildlife requested more than $3 million dollars to hire five permanent staff and begin implementing a beaver restoration program throughout the state in the next two years.
