Return of the otters: One of the great comeback stories of Alberta wildlife

If you're looking for otter tracks, keep an eye out for a distinctive "jump, lope, slide" pattern near the water.

As naturalist Brian Keating told The Homestretch, otters are mobile and can travel great distances as they jump and slide along the snow-covered ice of a river.

In 2017, Keating spotted a long otter trail, travelling upstream near the Calgary Zoo. And just this winter, he spotted some fresh tracks along the Karst Springs Trail in Kananaskis Country while cross-country skiing.

"We came across the tracks and I think that the otter was under the snow," Keating said.

"And then it popped out like a gopher hole. And it may be that we actually scared the otter out because the tracks were incredibly fresh."

The fresh otter tracks inspired Keating to ask around.

Keating said it looks like the otter population is increasing in Alberta.
