This inspiring yet whimsical film captures the vision, energy, and dedication of a handful of scientists and activists who share a passion for restoring the North American Beaver, Castor Canadensis, to much of its former habitat and range.  Although this goal might seem esoteric or a eccentric, The Beaver Believers shows us how this humble creature can not only help us restore streams and watersheds damaged by decades of neglect, beaver can also show us how we can live more harmoniously with nature in an era of destabilizing climate change.   By “thinking like a beaver” we can create more bountiful ecosystems and more plentiful water resources, while also providing for our own needs and enriching our human communities at the same time.  Beavers can show us the way and do much of the work for us if we can just find the humility to trust in the restorative powers of nature and our own ability to play a positive role in it.
