The IOSF run courses for people interested in otters and give talks to schools, natural history groups, etc. IOSF’s Team Otter programme is reconnecting children with nature, wildlife and the environment, igniting a passion that will last their whole life. A recent study found that people who have access to nature act in a more sustainable and environmental way compared to those who do not. A lack of knowledge leads to a lack of interest.
There is a dedicated website for children, TEAM OTTER (www.loveotters.org) and they are developing a network of TEAM OTTER clubs worldwide with clubs already established in Montenegro, Guyana and Bangladesh as well as the UK.
