Beavers have been reintroduced to London for the first time in over 400 years to help restore wildlife and river habitats.
A man and woman, both two years old, were released into a special enclosure on the grounds of Forty Hall Farm in Enfield on Thursday (March 17).
Ian Barnes, the council’s deputy leader, shared a video of the strangely named “Justin Beaver” exploring his new home.
The species was hunted to extinction in Britain in the 16th century but is now being reintroduced across England thanks to a series of schemes.
