We are a group of Ottawa residents who rallied to save the lives of two beaver, Lily and Lucky, who built a lodge in a storm water pond in Stittsville, a suburb of Ottawa. These beaver were going to be trapped and killed by the City, but because of a huge public outcry which included a petition, emails, phone calls, a demonstration, and media coverage, the Mayor suspended the trapping, for now. We continue to fight for all beaver in Ottawa.
