This really cool time-lapse video shows how a beaver dam built in a remote northern Minnesota pond is used like a superhighway by all sorts of local animals.

The Voyageurs Wolf Project posted a video on their Facebook page that was taken from hours of footage over a beaver dam.

They edited the video down to just a few minutes of exceptional wildlife footage.

The Voyageurs Wolf Project explained...”Pure beaver dam magic! This footage chronicles the happenings on a remote beaver dam from late winter to fall.

We did our best to distill the 3 hours of footage we captured at this dam into this 6-minute video.

And did we catch some neat stuff… including an amazingly rare sequence of a wolf hunting a beaver, a bear with 3 tiny cubs, beavers doing funny things, and an abundance of other wildlife.

Aside from the wildlife, this pond is just a stunning, beautiful, and serene place….the kind of place you wish you could just sit quietly and observe the happenings of the natural world while the seasons go by."

The Voyageurs Wolf Project is focused on understanding the summer ecology of wolves in the Greater Voyageurs Ecosystem, Minnesota, USA.

Our over-arching goal is to couple cutting-edge, rigorous wolf research with highly effective outreach and education.
