Volunteers required for otter survey

We urgently need volunteers in your area for otter field work. Please could you consider helping us, and sharing the advert below with your local mammal contacts?

Do you have experience of otter surveys and can survey the Tywi, Tefi or Cleddau catchments in west Wales?
We need your help to investigate if otter diet has changed over the past 30 years. In the next couple of months we need to visit around 90 river sites in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Ceredigion and collect otter spraint for diet analysis. We are repeating surveys conducted in the 1980s and 1990’s. 

We can provide site maps, sample gloves and bags and travel expenses. If you are interested in helping, please contact otters@cardiff.ac.uk To find out more about our work, please visit www.cardiff.ac.uk/otter-project

Many thanks

Eleanor Kean
