World Otter Day 2024

World Otter Day, celebrated annually on the last Wednesday of May, is dedicated to raising awareness about the conservation needs of otters. This day highlights the important role these endearing creatures play in the environment and addresses the threats they face, such as habitat destruction, water pollution, and poaching.

To celebrate World Otter Day, you can join the Toucan Rescue Ranch for a special opportunity to learn about Emma the Otter through either a virtual or an onsite tour. The Toucan Rescue Ranch collaborates with the International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF) every year to bring educational programs about the neotropical river otters in Costa Rica. These programs aim to enlighten the community about otter conservation and the specific challenges faced by the neotropical species.

By participating in these events, you not only get to enjoy learning about these fascinating animals but also contribute to their conservation. Whether you’re able to visit in person or join online, the Toucan Rescue Ranch provides an engaging way to support otter conservation efforts and celebrate World Otter Day.
