    CAN A CANADIAN ICON HELP SAVE THE PLANET? THE BEAVER WHISPERERS POSES THIS QUESTION ON CBC TV’S THE NATURE OF THINGS, THURSDAY, MARCH 28, 8PM

    The world’s next environmental crisis is predicted to be a water shortage. Who would have guessed that the humble beaver could be the ecological superhero that saves us all?
    ***

    A growing number of scientists, conservationists and grass-roots environmentalists see the beaver as a much overlooked tool when it comes to reversing the disastrous effects of global warming and world-wide water shortages. THE BEAVER WHISPERERS will revisit the industrious rodent and see it through the eyes of people like the University of Alberta’s, Dr. Glynnis Hood, whose astonishing scientific research findings are presented in her new book, “The Beaver Manifesto, “ and former trapper, Michel Leclair, who today “employs” an army of beavers to help him control flooding in Quebec’s Gatineau Park. This documentary will accompany these and other “beaver whisperers” as they reveal the ways in which the presence of beaver transform and revive landscapes. THE BEAVER WHISPERERS reveals what it is that makes our national icon such a brilliant hydro-engineers and explores how beavers are being recruited to accomplish everything from finding water in a bone-dry desert to recharging water tables and coaxing life back into damaged lands.

    THE BEAVER WHISPERERS will be aired on CBC TV’s The Nature of Things on Thursday, March 28 at 8PM (8:30 NT).

    This documentary is written, directed and produced by award-winning filmmaker Jari Osborne and made by Dam Builder Productions.
