Long Island River Otter Project

The Huntington-Oyster Bay Audubon Society ("HOBAS") funded three wildlife surveillance cameras that were placed in areas where evidence of river otters have been found within the chapter territory.

In Oyster Bay, the cameras were set up to determine the effectiveness of structures designed to allow otters to travel over dams and other obstacles without crossing roads and, along with data collected from additional wildlife surveillance cameras placed in other known otter territories, they are part of a larger study to document the movements, population size, habitat use and behavior of the island’s river otters.

The study is now completed and we are eagerly awaiting the final report from biologist Mike Bottini!
