Welcome back to our Farming blog, this week we wanted to share with you all about the Moor Otter Trail, but first have you read our two latest blog posts? One was all about some of our favourite ice cream shops in devon while the other was giving you the latest from the farms. Back to this week however and we wanted to share this amazing event with you so you can enjoy it on your holiday in Devon.
What is the Moor Otter Trail
The Moor Otter Trail is a public art project that connects people together on a journey of discovery. 81 Otters with their cubs have been decorated and released all across Dartmoor to create 4 art trails. They have been placed so that you can discover them while enjoying the outstanding countryside that makes are Dartmoor and learn all about Dartmoor and its people’s history.
Why Run the Event
The event is being run to showcase the stunning area of Dartmoor and at the end, the Otters are auctioned off to find new homes. This raises valuable funds for conservation and access projects in the park.
