The Mull Otter Group (MOG) is a fast growing association of enthusiasts whose aim is to create positive awareness regarding the conservation needs of otters on the Isle of Mull. With over 300 miles of suitable coastal habitat, the island supports one of the highest densities of Eurasian Otters in the United Kingdom (UK) and is probably one of the best places in Europe to see these much sought after, yet often elusive animals.

What Do We Do?

To help Mull’s otters, our activities range from education and raising public awareness, to direct conservation work, and scientific research. You can read more about what we do here.
