Every week Worth A Dam is contacted by someone who is worried about the beavers in their city and wants to help. We’re happy to offer advice learned in Martinez or gleaned by helping other areas learn along the way. Feel free to email us with your specific questions and we will try our best to point you in the right direction. Get familiar with the “PROBLEMS” and “FAQ” sections of this website, watch the HOW and WHY to live with beaver videos, talk to your friends and neighbors, and take some photos, because people are much more likely to care about wildlife when they can see it.

Then take a look at our “Advice for advocates” section and think about how the recommendations might work for you! Here’s a map of the urban beavers written about in 2015, so you know you’re not alone, and a lovely article about urban areas that have learned to coexist with beavers. Finally, a video from Oregon on the benefits of urban beavers.
