Our North American Beaver Travels South 
by 
Lars Mortensen 


Never thinking that beavers were ever found outside North American rivers, I started researching very interesting ecological writings I thought to investigate further. The North American beaver did travel to South America, for similar exploitation of the beaver fur trade as recently as seventy years ago. The introduced relative of our Northern rivers, the South American beaver’s experiment did not succeed well. In the early 1940’s, there was a joint effort to establish a South American fur trade business. This reminds Canadians of history-gone-by the rivalry of frontier era American and Hudson’s Bay Fur Trade empires. After the experiment failed, the organization released several dozen pairs of breeding beavers into the wild. What happened after a few years is what has occurred to many environments throughout the world, with devastating results. The introduced non-native species multiplied from a few cast-off beavers to an estimated one hundred thousand beavers at present count. 
Here in Florida as well as throughout other parts of America, we have similar non-native species taking over the environment. The ecosystem of these areas have given rise to extreme damage to the environment. 
There is no way to stop the beaver from heading into the areas in Argentina. At first the experiment was localized just on the island of Tierra Del Fuego. Eventually, the beaver multiplied and then crossed the Magellan Strait to the mainland of Argentina and has also migrated North to Chilean river valleys. The humane solution would be to let mother nature control the invasion. However, there are no predators that hunt the beaver in these areas. So naturalists and environmentalists are very concerned for the future of these various countries and the invasion from “our” beaver.
