In Tunisia with Faouz

So little is known about the Eurasian otter (Lutra lutra) population in Tunisia. Faouz Kilani, AON member, together with the Tunisian Association for Wildlife (ATVS) has started to work on this species and managed to create a production of a scientific note and a documentary in 2019.

Currently, she is working with the same association on mammals (including the Eurasian Otter) of Northern Tunisia in a project called “COBIOM”, funded by Critical Ecosystem Partnership Fund (CEPF)  in order to increase the knowledge regarding the species in the area.

Faouz is now planning to conduct a PhD on the Eurasian otter in Tunisia to cover many different components such as distribution and foraging habits, to hopefully fill the knowledge gaps and raise awareness about this beautiful and important species in her country.
