Don’t Blame Lovable Beavers For Destruction of Towns

Target: The Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, Canada

Goal: Protect beavers from unjust accusations and potential culls.

Once threatened by extinction, beavers made a comeback in Canada and are present in the millions. Now, their natural behavior leads to conflicts between them and humans. Beavers take posts out of lumber yards to build their dams and chew through cables resulting in whole cities losing power.

A town in Quebec calls for its entire beaver population of nearly 800 to be exterminated because the damage the animals cause is supposedly extremely costly. Beavers have the right to live, and the call for a cull is a mistake. Sign this petition to ensure beavers’ safety in Canada.


Dear Honourable Mr. Wilkinson,

Beavers are a symbol of Canada and are, as most other species, vital for the ecosystem. In some Canadian regions, the human population is upset with the destruction beavers cause and therefore calls for their death sentence.

Glynnis Hood, a professor of environmental science at the University of Alberta says “[…] beavers are just being beavers.” Threatening a species with death for following its instincts is cruel and wrong. As the Minister of Environment and Climate Change, you must guarantee the safeguard of the precious beavers in Canada.

  1. Back off and leave the beavers alone. They have the right to live! Any scumbag human that harms a poor defenseless animal must be exterminated!!!

  2. What a gift to have an indigenous animal to exist in your environment; an example of tolerance and co existence. If it’s not realised then you are just a another place that ignored and failed to protect a prescious part of your heritage.
