This 2008 handout photo courtesy of the Wood Buffalo National Park in Northern Alberta shows the world's biggest beaver dam. A Canadian ecologist has discovered the world's biggest beaver dam in a remote area of northern Alberta, using satellite imagery and Google Earth.
Lou Leopold, District Committee Member, Camarillo District, Ventura County Council, who usta be a Beaver himself in W4-57-99, steered us onto a Canadian news report about the "World's Biggest Beaver Dam," proving once again that even old and feeble Beavers can still Beaver some more... The Yahoo News reports that Canadian ecologist Jean Thie has discovered the world's largest beaver dam in a remote area of northern Alberta, an animal-made structure so large it is visible from space. He used satellite imagery and Google Earth software to locate the dam, which is about 2,800 feet long on the southern edge of Wood Buffalo National Park. Read more at:
Multi-generational (for the beavers, that is) in the making, this dam project has gotta be the world's longest-running Wood Badge ticket, too!
