Join us on Wednesday 29 May from 1pm to 3.30pm at the North East Business Innovation Centre in Sunderland and help us raise funds for the International Otter Survival Fund (IOSF).
The IOSF is the only charity in the UK solely dedicated to the conservation, protection and care of otters based on over 20 years of scientific research around the world.
The event will include a short presentation and film on IOSF work with Otters and an opportunity to discuss corporate sponsorship and other support opportunities.
Refreshments and Otter Cup Cakes will also be available!
We’ll also be holding a raffle to win many “otterly” incredible prizes with all proceeds going to the International Otter Survival Fund.
Your ticket will be your raffle ticket and the draw will take place at the end of the event. Even if you can’t attend the event in person you can still purchase your ticket and be entered into the raffle. This event is also part of our LinkedIn Local initiative to raise awareness of good causes.
We hope you can join us at what will be a very exciting and fun event to celebrate World Otter Day!
About the IOFS: it’s one of the world’s leading otter charities, and in the UK is the only charity solely dedicated to the conservation, protection and care of otters based on over 20 years of scientific research in the UK and around the world.
Otter numbers in the UK have increased slightly in recent years but the Eurasian otter is still classed as “Near Threatened” in the Red Data List. Through education, research, influencing policy and partner working the IOSF is making progress but there is still much to be done here in the UK and other countries where otters are at risk.
IOSF was inspired by observing Otters in their natural habitat. Because the otter lives, feeds and plays on land and in the water and is at the peak of the food chain it is an ambassador species to a first-class environment.
IOSF was set up to protect and help the 13 species of otter worldwide through a combination of compassion and science. They support projects to protect otters, which will also ensure that a healthy environment is available for all species, including our own. Visit their website.
