Abstract

Although recent evidence of the species recovery has been reported for many European countries, in Italy the Eurasian otter Lutra lutra is still considered endan- gered. Otter populations are confined to few river basins in the southern part of the peninsu- la and these are both geographically and genetically isolated from other European popula- tions. This critical situation led the Italian Ministry of Environment to promote the produc- tion of an Action Plan for the otter in Italy, whose methods, aims and actions are briefly summarized.
