If ever you see an otter in the Philippines, please take pictures or videos and observations…. I would be happy if you can share it here in this blog (rest assured that we will give you the credits). PLEASE DO NOT DISTURB OR TAKE OTTERS FROM THEIR NATURAL HABITAT… Let them live freely!!! Hoping for your participation in otter conservation!! BE ONE OF US… 🙂

    • Dear Lola Jane – thank you for waking me up that I haven’t updated my blog for a long time and there are people reading it who wants to learn more about otters in Palawan, Philippines. Thank you for taking time to read it and hope that you can bear with me ‘coz I am not really good in blogging and just learning to do it little by little. Glad to know more conservation advocates!

      • I’m happy to find information about your research and completely support the advocacy work you are doing to save the remaining Philippine otters!
