  • Why otters patrol their territories and fight for them
  • Breeding, natural history and behaviour.
  • Unusual otter information: blind otters, the work of otter groups, the difficulties of introducing otters in the wild, their surprising ability to live close to man.
  • Otters as predators their impact on fish stocks, the difficulty of fish-hunting in cold water, their favourite foods.

  • Helping the otter to survive in the 21st century.
