There is something quick that you can do today to help otters and other marine life and it won’t cost you a penny! We have just a few days left before the Scottish Parliament consider a proposal by Mark Ruskell MSP to stop kelp dredging. Write to your MSP before the 21st November 2018 and […]
Mull Otter Group received a call yesterday about an otter cub at Glenforsa. The cub had not moved for some time and was not very responsive so the decision was taken to look after it. This is always a carefully considered decision – it would be all too easy to interfere in a situation where […]
MOG had a very busy day on Sunday installing more roadside reflectors near Garmony, and at Inverlussa. The hope is that at night time otters will see the reflection of car headlights and be deterred from crossing the road until the car passes. We also found time to properly install our otter sculpture at the […]
Save the Date! World Otter Day is on May 31st. Stay posted for news of our events!
More video footage of the otters we released with the SSPCA on Mull, which shows that they are doing well. The feeding will soon be reduced and then stopped, and then they will be truly wild and independent otters. We are indebted to the kind person who every evening is putting out the fish and […]
Just look at some of the video footage Mull Otter Group managed to get of our newly released otters last night! The otters we released a couple of weeks ago are eating the fish that is being left out for them (just temporarily to get them through their transition period). By the look of it […]
Last year we rescued a small abandoned cub, Gribun, which would otherwise have died, and it went off to be reared by the SSPCA and it joined another small cub there. The SSPCA did a splendid job and the otters were mature enough to be returned to Mull for release. Last Thursday we released both […]
Mull Otter Group has updated its information leaflet. We will be distributing the leaflet across Mull in the coming weeks. If there are any Mull businesses who would like to make the leaflet available to their guests then please let us know. You can download the PDF version so that it is handy to use […]
Just like the chicken, it wanted to get to the other side! Otters need to cross the roads which lie between the feeding area on the shore, and the places where they rest and get fresh water which are further inland. We wish they would wait until it’s safe to cross the road, or always […]
Mull Otter Group will have a stall at the launch event of Wild Mull. Come along!
