Information wanted on African Otters

More information is needed on the distrubution of otters in Africa. The IUCN Otter Specialist Group, in association with Aktion Fischotterschutz, has started a public awareness campaign and initiative to collect data on otter distribution. To this end, a four-page leaflet has been prepared to highlight and aid in identification of the four species of otters found in Africa. We would like to thank WWF South Africa and The Mazda Wildlife Trust for their donations supporting the printing of these leaflets.

The leaflet is available as a PDF File (1.3MB) in five languages and can be downloaded here:

Printed versions of the leaflet in English, French and German can be obtained from:
