ABWAK Otter Keepers’ Workshop

New Forest Wildlife Park - Tuesday 10th September 2024

Returning for the 3rd time, the ever-popular ABWAK Otter Keepers' Workshop is back for 2024, and once again returning to The New Forest Wildlife Park. Set in the glorious Hampshire countryside and being home to 4 different species of otter, makes this location the ideal host for this workshop. As well as being home to the WAZA/ISB holder and the EAZA EEP monitor for Asian Short Clawed Otters - Jason Palmer. This is an ideal opportunity for otter keepers to network, learn about otter husbandry and develop new skills.

Topics include:

  • Nutrition.
  • In-situ conservation in the UK.
  • Asian Short Clawed Otters in captivity.
  • Giant Otters in Guyana.
  • Sea Otter husbandry.
  • Smoother Coated Otters.
