12 Beaver Quotes to Unleash Your Industrious Self

With their two large front teeth, beavers are clearly rodents. In fact, they are the second largest rodent next to the capybaras. However, compared to the typical rodents we know, beavers are semi-aquatic. They have webbed feet and scaled tails that allow them to swim, and they can actually hold their breath underwater for up to 15 minutes. 

Don't build your dams and open your minds as you read our curated educational and inspirational beaver quotes.

Beaver Quotes To Remind You About Why We Should Save The Home Of Animals

Countries have long used majestic creatures like lions or eagles to represent them. But have you ever thought about why Canada chose these charming rodents? Trading of beaver pelts became the backbone of the developing country.

Unfortunately, these events throughout centuries accounted for the near extinction of beavers. Fortunately, a reduction in the fur trade alongside conservation efforts by the government and the public means beaver populations have recovered. 

After reading these quotes, connect with animal conservation groups near you as we all create a future where we and the animals can coexist peacefully.

"The raccoons, foxes, beavers, chinchillas, minks, rabbits, and yes, sometimes even dogs and cats that are killed for fur are not very different from your beloved dog or cat. They all have eyes, ears and hearts. They all experience pain when they are physically maimed. They shake with fear when they experience terror." -Jane Velez-Mitchell #trvst #quotes #takeaction #bethechange #rodent #beaver

"I used to swim with these beavers in a beaver pond when I was 10. I went back when I was 11 and found there were no more beavers. I found that trappers had taken them all, so I became quite angry, and that winter I began to walk the trap lines and free animals from the traps and destroy the traps." -Paul Watson #trvst #quotes #dogood #impact #beaver #free #rodent

Noteworthy Quotes About Beavers You Can Find In Books

Beaver's orange teeth are constantly growing, which is why they trim them daily by gnawing trees. They then transport these trees to the river bank, where they will build their dams. Some people hate beavers because they destroy property, but we need to celebrate their existence. 

They save and maintain wetlands, increase biodiversity, minimize floods, and have many more positive impacts with their excellent dam-building skills, all of which would cost significantly more if we have to do so without the beavers' help.

May we take into account their environmental benefits as we read the following beaver quote from books.

"As beavers build dams and bees build hives, human beings have spears. Or take the high intelligence of human beings, the ability to make plans, to transmit information - that was also there before, but that, together with the tools, was not enough to make man special." -Yuval Noah Harari #trvst #quotes #bethechange #takeaction #beaver #book #rodent #dams
