How beaver dams prevent the spread of fires
There is a very good simple video that shows the role of beavers and beaver dams in controlling the spread of wild fires.
When beavers build dams the water backs up and forms ponds and wetland. The fire will pass through the area below the dam, but the area above the dam is wet and marshy. I doesn't burn.

The video is short and cute and it makes the point. If it reaches enough people then maybe we will start letting beavers build dams and create wet areas. Nature has ways of controlling fires. It is time we started letting nature help us.
