The Otter Colloquia

The conference of the Otter Specialist Group happens every three years, and is known as the International Otter Colloquium.

Next Colloquium:

We invite you to attend the XIIth International Otter Congress of the IUCN-SSC Otter Specialist Group in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The meeting will take place between 11 and 15 August, 2014 at Fórum de Ciência e Cultura of Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ). It will bring together OSG members, field biologists, students and policy makers from all parts of the world. The circular can be downloaded at the Congress web site ( https://sites.google.com/site/ottercongress ). These are both exciting and challenging times for conservationists and we expect the Congress to be an event that will remembered as a milestone for otter conservation!
