Environmental Woes of Tierra del Fuego -- Invasive Species

In an act that will earn a death penalty from park rangers, a beaver builds a quick dam in a culvert along Tierra del Fuego National Park's main road. Fencing, like that seen above, has reduced damage to the park road by beavers, but the crafty engineers will still seize any easy opportunity to create a pond for their dens. By blocking road culverts or flooding nearby waterways, beavers inundate many of the island's back roads.
