A study by the NRRI published in the journal Ecography in December 2021 reports that beavers are essential for freshwater conservation and ecosystem stability in Minnesota. We have a conversation with Sean Johnson-Bice, one of the authors of this article, to learn more.

Johnson-Bice earned his master’s degree from the University of Minnesota-Duluth and is now seeking his Ph.D. at the University of Manitoba.
