    About This Project

    North American river otters are found throughout Florida but few studies have focused on the health of this species in FL. While most people consider them playful animals, there are occasional conflicts with humans including bites on people and pets that are often attributed to a rabies infection or defensive behavior. Our project will look at the incidence of otter-human conflict in Florida and what factors may be important. We will also investigate reports of rabies infections in otters.
