IOSF has cared for over 200 injured and orphaned otters since it began around 25 years ago. Each otter provides a different and unique rearing process as everyone is different. Otters stay with the mother for 12-15 months and therefore, when we receive an otter cub, they must stay with IOSF for that period of time.


IOSF offers otters in need a safe passage back into the wild. These individuals which have been left dependant for a variety of reasons come into our care before being released back to the wild, where they belong.
