The longest beaver dam in the world

Exploring beaver habitat and distribution with Google Earth. Take this half mile long dam northeast of Fort McMurray, for example.

The longest beaver dam observed with Google Earth to date (October 2 2007) is located in Northern Alberta. The dam has a length of about 850 meters (2790 ft). It has at least existed at this spot for over 15 years as it can be observed on the 1990 LandSat 7 Pseudo Color Imagery Provided by NASA World Wind.
