Beavers were all killed off by the early explores and settlers and were essentially gone from New Hampshire by 1800. A small number moved into the far northern part of the state in about 1910 and were then protected by the legislators. By 1930 Fish and Game staff began moving small numbers of beaver south to central and even southern sections of the state. Beavers were really not very plentiful until the 1960's in parts of the state. Fish and Game spent decades protecting and nurturing the beaver population. Beavers provide significant habitat for much of this state's wildlife.
