World Otter Day seeks to raise awareness about otters. Otters are carnivorous mammals within the Lutrinae subfamily. They are semi-aquatic or marine species that primarily eat fish and small insects. This day aims to highlight the importance of otters to their ecosystems. Many are endangered which means in the future, they could face extinction. Otters around the world face threats like habitat loss, pollution, and illegal trading.
World Otter Day was established in 2014. It is observed annually on the last Wednesday of May.
