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 confront the challenges we face.
