American beaver

By the 1900s, beavers were entirely extirpated from Virginia and were difficult to find across the entire lower 48 states due to over-consumption by humans. In 1950, the Boy Scouts reintroduced 5 beavers into Prince William Forest Park. Today there are more than 80 beavers in the 15,000 acre park.
