Mission and Vision
2016 Year of the Otter
We want to protect otters so that future generations to come can enjoy one of the world’s most charming, elusive and enjoyable mammals.
The IOSF aims to work with local communities throughout the world to educate, inform and encourage the protection and conservation of otters.
Through a programme of research, the IOSF will become the world’s foremost authority on otter behaviour, habitat, persecution and conservation.
We want people throughout the world to be as appalled by Otter persecution and hunting as we are towards Tiger and Rhino hunting.
We would like to educate people to the benefits of Otters, what healthy populations mean for the environment and dispel myths that are causing Otters to be intentionally disturbed, persecuted and hunted.
