You could say beaver dams are sometimes a means of conservation! Beaver dams are associated with an increased diversity of songbirds, because they help create food and habitat for populations of bird species in decline. As for salmon and some other fish species, dams produce ponds that are deep enough for juvenile salmon to hide from predatory wading birds, and they trap nutrients needed when adult salmon migrate upstream.
