Moor Otters

We have positioned 100 Moor Otters around Dartmoor, gateway towns and other surprise locations. Now we are giving you the chance to track them down and win prizes!

Pick up an otter spotter guide from one of our Visitor Centres to find as many Moor Otters as possible.

If you would like to go otter spotting, then download an entry form, to be in with a chance to win one of the fabulous prizes.

If you are able to find 20 Moor Otters, list their names and codes from the plinth on the entry form, then simply fill in your details, hand the form into one of our visitor centres at Haytor, Princetown or Postbridge and pick up your free otter spotter badge!
