Otter Watching Days

Our Current Event

International Otter Survival Fund World Otter Day 2018

Wednesday 30 May   


          2018 World Otter Day                         


May will be here sooner than we expect.

Perhaps you have already given it some thought, or maybe this is just a little reminder.  If you can do something extra for World Otter Day to raise otter awareness and raise a wee bit more money to help otters that would be fantastic.  

Your support is important to us and the otters, and the more people know about how important they are to the environment, how they suffer as part of the illegal wildlife trade and how much they need our help; the better.  Encourage more people to care about and be passionate about otters, just like you, and the louder our voice will be.


Discover some ideas for taking part here 

To help you we are adding event and information posters to our Resources page for you to download and print/share. More are being added gradually, so if you do not see your language at the moment,  keep checking and it should be available soon.
