International Otter Survival Fund: Promoting the Survival and Health of the World's Otter Population

| Updated September 11, 2018

The world's otter populations act as a barometer of ecological health

The International Otter Fund is a UK-based charity that works to protect otters in the wild and in captivity. IOSF works with local communities to address issues like conserving otter habitat — often an indicator of overall ecological health, raising awareness of illegal otter poaching, studying otter health and behavior, and promoting the importance of the role that otters play overall in a healthy environment.


The IOSF is helping otters all over the world.



IOSF holds special events like conservation education, World Otter Day, and otter watching events, all intended to help otters around the world thrive. Read more about the work of the International Otter Fund here, and take a look at IOSF’s most recent annual report.
