Beaver colony in Brasov


The beavers "living" in the county of Brasov shall be left alone, as it will also happen to their "relatives" in other towns, but they will be counted again within a few months from now. This is the main conclusion resulting from the visit paid last week by the Minister of Environment in Brasov, but also from the correspondence the Prefecture carried on this subject.
Drafting a project for protecting these animals is necessary since there is a beaver colony in the area of the Airport Ghimbav ? Brasov.

Their "addresses" are known

Even if the number of beavers in our county is not known exactly, they are under observation since the Prefecture asked the Mayors of villages and cities to study the area next to rivers and see if there were any barrages. No, not micro-hydroelectric plants, but wooden barrages built by beavers. This is not the entire assessment, but also the damages they cause.


"As regards the impact of the project for the institution of a protected area in the neighbourhood of Ghimbav airport, the officials of the Ministry of Environment, Waters and Forests provided insurances that the project of the protected area is not a hindrance in the completion of the airport, but can by an opportunity to develop a new "eco-friendly" location which can even get European financing. The fact that in the county of Brasov the number of beavers has increased is an indicator of the environmental health, proving that the waters are clean." declared Mihai Mohaci, the Prefect of Brasov.

The beaver colony, unique in Romania

The diking project, correlated with the existence of the beaver colony which is unique in Romania proves that these animals may coexist with the anthropized environment. The management manner of the protected area shall be determined in the future by adoption of the management plan, and then the procedure shall also include a public debate. For deciding upon the protected area, the approval of the local institutions has only a consultative role.
"In spring, we shall ask the NGO?s and the authorized foundations to help as determine the number of the beavers in the county of Brasov", also mentioned Mihai Mohaci.
