100 Moor Otters

5th Dec 2016 - 15th Sep 2017

I am very proud to be taking park in the Moor Otters Project which will see 100 Otters being decorated by 100 different artist to raise money for Dartmoor National Park. I will be dedicating my Otter to Dartmoor Search and Rescue Ashburton Team to help raise awareness for them too.


As well as keeping a diary of his creative journey below I also will be updating my Facebook page and twitter #rescueotter with regular photos
