World Otter Day is an annual event that seeks to raise awareness for the conservation of otters and their habitats across the globe. Established by the International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF), this day highlights the importance of otters to their ecosystems and encourages individuals to participate in campaigns to secure the future for the 13 species of otters found worldwide.
The observance of World Otter Day started in 2014. World Otter Day has been a platform to highlight the declining status of this species, which is characterised by habitat loss, pollution, and scarcity of prey. Over the years, World Otter Day has seen a surge in educational events, fundraisers, and initiatives related to otter conservation in the UK. These events focus on expanding awareness about these creatures and their significance.
Each year, World Otter Day takes place on the last Wednesday of May. By celebrating these animals and supporting the ongoing conservation work, the United Kingdom stands as a key contributor to the global efforts towards a thriving future for otters and their ecosystems.
