OTTERS OF THE WORLD OTTERS OF THE WORLD   layout image

by Paul Yoxon / Grace M Yoxon

Having worked for over 20 years on otter conservation of all 13 species, the authors wished to share their experiences of these beautiful animals. Each species is listed in the IUCN Red Data List and yet little attention is given to their predicament.

With greater awareness and support the IOSF will be able to do more on the world stage to conserve otters. Colour photographs, distribution maps, 176pp. DUE AUGUST 2014
