Otter Project

The Otter Project runs a long term environmental surveillance scheme, using otters found dead to investigate contaminants, disease, and population biology across the UK.

Find out who you need to contact if you've found a dead otter.

We record observations, measurements and biological specimens that can be of great benefit to ecological research.

Explore the interactive map of otter casualties received for post-mortem.

Otters are a charismatic species that can be used to drive conservation initiatives.

Our Facebook page has photos from our events and information about getting involved by volunteering.
