At the Flanders level, we look at how strong the decrease in pollutant pressure on otter is compared to data from 20 years ago, and whether this has contributed to the tentative recovery of otter.
At area level, we examine how pollutant concentrations vary between foraging habitats within one area, and how this affects species recovery and the measures to be taken.
