If you can't live without a specific Otter sculpture, you can adopt.

This means that you know you will definitely get the otter of your choice without a nerve wracking, nail biting auction! You get a new member of the family while supporting Dartmoor National Park. Adoption prices range depending on the Otter and Artist. For more details call 07491 925 157 or email
