Moor Otter Arts Project

Moor Otters is a public arts event, the first of its kind held in and around a National Park; a unique project combining art with a protected landscape.

This project has helped raise funds so Dartmoor National Park can fund conservation and access projects within the National Park. One of the aims of the project is to raise funds for:

  • Dealing with invasive non-native species (INNS). These are a significant threat to wildlife habitats and species globally and on Dartmoor. Many INNS are associated with the water environment and spread along rivers and streams. Dartmoor forms the headwaters of seven major river catchments in the south-west. We will work with local communities and volunteers to address this threat. This will benefit the streams and rivers, wetland habitats and the species, including otters, which depend on these habitats.
