The International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) is one of the world's leading otter conservation organizations. In the UK, the IOSF is the only organization dedicated solely to the conservation, protection and care of otters, based on years of scientific research in the UK and around the world.
The International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) was inspired by viewing otters in their natural habitat.
Because otters live, feed and play on land and in water, they are at the top of the food chain. The IOSF was created to protect and help the 13 species of otters around the world through a combination of passion and science. IOSF aims to work with local communities around the world to educate, inform and encourage the protection and conservation of otters through a research program.
At their rehabilitation center in Skye (Scotland), the IOSF treats 12 to 14 otters per year and studies their behavior to expand their knowledge.
The Le PAL Nature Foundation finances, in part, its operations, in particular food (milk and fish) then small equipment (beds, heating) and other veterinary costs.
The IOSF has organized seminars in Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Guyana, Indonesia, Laos, Tanzania and Thailand.
