Otters! The ambassadors of rivers and wetlands
PureCultTM is proud to support & sponsor the Otter conservation program conducted by the Centre for Wildlife Studies (CWS).
India is home to 3 Otter species. Major threats to their survival include loss of wetland habitats, fishing, pollution, trade, hunting, dam construction, road collisions, sand mining, and conflict with humans. Research to understand how these different factors impact otter populations and distribution will help in protecting this beautiful animal for future generations.
