IOSF is a global organisation working to conserve all 13 species of otter by helping to support scientists and other workers in practical conservation, education, research and rescue and rehabilitation.
Otters are special animals and we need special people to help.
Otter cubs cost about £1,000 to rear in terms of food, vet bills, etc. They stay with their mothers for 12-15 months so we have to release them at about the same age – if we release them too early they will not survive. This is why the food bills are so high.
We know times are hard for everyone, but if you can spare even a small amount to help the otters we will be very grateful. No amount is too small as it will buy a fish for an otter.
Money isn’t all we need as there are many other ways in which you can help. For more suggestions on what you can do click here.
