Sometimes the best solutions to the biggest problems can be found in the most unexpected places.
Meet the beaver believers: five scientists and a sassy, spicy hairdresser, tackling climate change, one
stick at a time.
The Beaver Believers is the urgent yet whimsical story of an unlikely cadre of activists who share a
common vision: restoring the North American Beaver, that most industrious, ingenious, bucktoothed
engineer, to the watersheds of the arid West. The Beaver Believers encourage us to embrace a new
paradigm for managing our western lands, one that seeks to partner with the natural world rather
than overpower it. As a keystone species, beaver enrich their ecosystems, creating the complexity
and resiliency our watersheds need to absorb the impacts of climate change. Beavers can show us
the way and even do much of the work for us, if only we can find the humility to trust in the
restorative power of nature and our own ability to play a positive role within it. Shot in 8 western US
states, Mexico, and Canada, through desert drought, raging wild fires, spring floods, and wetland
tranquility, this film will change the way you think about climate change and inspire you to step up to
confront the challenges we face.
