About Otter Watch

Otter Watch is a community science project that engages the public to monitor the recolonization of Long Island by river otters. Participants are simply asked to report any possible river otter sightings. Any member from the public can participate at any time. No registration is required. Reports can be submitted through the data form below or on a mobile device using the Survey 1-2-3 field app.
