The River Otter Alliance promotes the survival of the North American River Otter (Lontra canadensis) through education, research and habitat protection. We support current research and reintroduction programs, monitor abundance and distribution in the United States, and educate the general public through our newsletter, The River Otter Journal, on the need to restore and sustain River Otter populations.

Our goal is to be a center of communications among wildlife biologists, environmental organizations, fishermen, and all interested parties on a national and international basis, in order to ensure the healthy future of the North American River Otter.

The River Otter Alliance is grateful to Bob Fetterman for generously supporting the ROA website on otternet.com.
