Josh the Otter Water Safety & Awareness Project

Our goal is to educate children with a fun and simple message:

TO STAY AWAY FROM WATER UNLESS ACCOMPANIED BY AN ADULT.

“Josh the Baby Otter” was created to help children comprehend and remember this important message. Ultimately, we want to create a water safety behavior for all children that will be passed on from generation to generation.

We have already distributed several thousand copies of the book to daycares, preschools, and kindergarten classrooms across the country. With ongoing support, we will continue our efforts to incorporate this life saving message into every educational curriculum in the United States and beyond. We believe the book; “Josh the Baby Otter” has and will continue to save countless children’s lives.

“It’s an awesome program and more schools are calling us all the time to do it,” Hersh said. “If every year we hit the kindergarten class where we have kids who are at that point where they’re adventurous, we’ll be ahead of the game.”

The 2016 JCMF Golf Tournament raised over $60,000.00 to support our water safety educational programs!

We THANK all of our amazing supporters across the U.S. and worldwide! Because of YOU over 1 million children have heard the life-saving message of water safety with Josh the Otter!

'Crews set to resume search for man missing in Conagra Lake'

Not the news Team Josh wanted to wake up to this morning. Prayers that search crews will find this man okay...but sadly things do not look good. A witness last saw him swimming near the fountain in the dark. Never go near water alone. As our dear friend Dana Wilson Gage with the The LV Project says..."Lake water is very unforgiving."
