Scotland is a European stronghold for the otter, a species of the land, river and sea. The otter (Lutra lutra) was lost from most of England and Wales between the 1950s and the 1970s because of pesticide pollution of waterways. But it survived in Scotland’s cleanest bodies of water in the north and west.
Today, the species is flourishing across Scotland, and recovering well across the UK as waterways are cleaned up. The Scottish popultaion is estimated to be around 8000 otters.
