Essex Wildlife Trust are looking for volunteers to help with the 2019-2020 annual Essex Otter survey.    

The survey which runs from October 2019 to June 2020 will mark the 25th Anniversary of the annual county survey, which began in 1996 before being incorporated into Riversearch in 2007.

With Otters now found in every major watercourse in Essex, 2019-2020 will be the last of the annual Essex Otter surveys. Essex Wildlife Trust aims to re-visit all 256 survey points across Essex and South Suffolk, the findings of which will be published in a 25th anniversary report in late 2020.
