FURGET-ME-NOT – A NEW CAMPAIGN TO SAVE OTTERS

Dr Paul Yoxon of IOSF said “The campaign is called ‘Furget-me-not’ as the otter is the forgotten animal of the fur trade. Everyone always thinks about tigers and leopards or elephant ivory, but the trade in otter furs is huge. Recently there was a massive haul of 778 otter skins in Tibet and we are regularly getting reports of more and more skins found. Two days ago we had an email from Cambodia which said that a research team at the Tonle Sap Lake had just found 10 skins of smooth-coated otters and 6 skins of hairy-nosed otters at four different village houses. And this is just the tip of the iceberg as this is just one small area and just one find.”
