Due to the coronavirus outbreak, and the need to protect the health and well-being of communities, ‘otter spotters’ and businesses, a decision has been made to reschedule the trail to Spring 2021.
A new date will be announced in due course. The relaunch will be timed to support local business recovery and provide a much needed boost to tourism.
What it's all about
Moor Otters is a feel-good public arts project that gathers up young and old for an amazing journey of learning and discovery, creating stories and making memories.
This summer 80 decorated Otter with Cub sculptures will be released onto Dartmoor to create four arts trails, standing tall on plinths waiting to be spotted.
At the end of the summer ‘otter-spotters’ as well as art collectors and individuals, will have the opportunity to give their favourite Otter a new home when they are auctioned to raise funds for Donate for Dartmoor.

South West Water
"We are delighted to support this important conservation project. About 40% of our water supply comes from Dartmoor, and given that we work with nature to help deliver high quality drinking water to our customers, this is a natural partnership for a great cause.
We can all help nature by using less water. Every litre of water saved is a litre left in the environment. The less water we use, the more we can keep our rivers and streams flowing and nature thriving."
