The Tamar Otters

These photographs were taken at the Tamar Otter and Wildlife Centre near Launceston Cornwall England.The wildlife centre concentrates on rescuing injured and abandoned otters,with the aim of rehabilitation and eventual release back into the wild.I was shown round after all the visitors had left which was an amazing privilege for me to spend some quality time with these incredible intelligent animals.It is great to know that otters are now on the increase in the U.K since the banning of hunting them which was totally barbaric.I have yet to see them in the wild as they are very secretive,also rarely seen during the daylight hours,but i am an optimist and with more and more daylight sightings i hope to get a glimpse sooner or later of these powerful aquatic mammels.
