A burgled wildlife park in Kent has resumed improvement work on its beaver enclosure after offers of help from members of the public.
The Wildwood beavers are soon to be joined by two new families
A cement mixer was stolen two weeks ago by thieves who cut through a perimeter fence at Wildwood, near Canterbury.
But the park said it had since received donations of mixers, plus offers of free loans, from all over the county.
Head ranger Chris Towner said as a result it would now be able to start other projects earlier than expected.
"The generosity of people is fantastic," he said.
The beaver enclosure is being prepared to house two new families, which are due to arrive from Europe.
The improvements are part of a scheme to re-establish the species as a nature conservation tool in the wild.
Beavers, which help maintain ponds and wetlands, were hunted to extinction in the UK in the 17th Century.
