In Sudbury, Ontario, the Science North zoo is saying goodbye to one of its beloved residents, Kash the beaver. Kash has been a part of Science North since 2016 when he first arrived as a kit. However, the facility was originally built to accommodate only one beaver.
As Kash has grown older, his need for increased social engagement with other animals, especially other beavers, has become more important. Science North, which is a part of Canada’s Accredited Zoos and Aquariums network, is working to find Kash a new home. Amy Henson, the center’s senior scientist, shared that they cannot yet disclose the exact location of Kash’s new home but it is a facility that Science North has collaborated with extensively in the past.
While Science North does not have immediate plans to acquire another beaver as a replacement for Kash, the current enclosure will be used for smaller animals such as turtles and some fish species. Henson emphasized that despite Kash’s departure, Science North offers a wide variety of animals for visitors to learn about and enjoy. Even though they will no longer have a beaver at the center
