Just last year (2021), they rescued 40 otters, and released another 25 back into the wild!Β 

We’re often called upon to help with orphaned, injured and rescued otter cubs that have been found alone and in need of care

Otters

Cousins to badgers, otters are also part of the Mustelid family, which includes minks, weasels and polecats! Interestingly, they're not born natural swimmers, so their first lesson usually involves being thrown into the water! Talk about tough love. Otters in the wild won't usually live past four years.Β 

Often, otters are incorrectly seen as a threat to fisheries, so gamekeepers and fishers persecute them. Those living near the sea (sea otters), will also sometimes fall victim to fishing nets, dying through suffocation, like whales can. In mainland UK, otters will also be vulnerable to road collisions, causing deaths. Lastly, human pollution and waste from pesticides will cause riverbanks to become toxic, and Cardiff University found the pollutants impacted otter reproductive systems.Β
