Moor Otters Trail
A great way to spend your spare time this summer is the great Dartmoor otter hunt. Not the living breathing furry creatures, but a hundred three-foot-tall statues that have been painted by mostly local artists and distributed across Dartmoor National Park. Moor Otters is the first major public art project in a UK National Park and is generating a lot of excitement in South Devon.
The Otter Spotter Competition
After being all together in one room for the launch, the otters have now scampered to various locations all over Dartmoor, including Tavistock, Okehampton, Ivybridge and Newton Abbot. Dartmoor National Park, the organisers of the Moor Otters trail, are also running a competition. All you have to do is find twenty of the otter statues and write down their special identification numbers (found on a plaque near each otter) and enter the details onto the form in the Otter Trail Guide (available from anywhere there is an otter statue) and hand it in to one of the Visitor Centres at Haytor, Princetown or Postbridge. The draw will take place on 20th October 2017 and there is a great selection of prizes, including a cream tea, a family cinema ticket and a hotel stay.
