The Emma Bridgewater Otter Mug features a group of smiling Otters, adoringly looking upwards. The inside rim is ordered with ‘otter’ in elegant blue writing.
The Otter is a carnivorous Mammal. There are thirteen species altogether. The Eurasian Otter is the most common species found in the UK.
The Otter was on the brink of extinction in the 1950s, but the numbers have steadily increased over the past 25 years or so thanks to cleaner rivers. Otters seek clean water (rivers, lakes or coastland) to raise their cubs.
There are now over 10000 Otters in the UK (mostly in Scotland) which is good news however they are still classified as a near-threatened species. You can raise Otter awareness with this Otter Mug.
