Cork Nature Network is delighted to have held an art event to raise awareness about otters in Co Cork. Sand-artist Seán Corcoran (The Art Hand) made a new work at Youghal beach.
Cork Nature Network brought Seán Corcoran to Youghal Beach to create a life-size image of an otter in the sand, to create awareness of the Cork Otter Project and plans to create a Youghal Otter Trail, highlighting local otter habitats. This event was set up to celebrate an otter called Olie who reached into the hearts of local residents. Sadly, he was recently killed in a motor accident but the importance of protecting and conserving otters is a key message of this activity.
