Otter woman of Palawan

An old friend from The Philippines, Lyca Sandrea G. Castro dropped by to visit Meryl Theng and myself to chat about … otters of course!

Lyca and later her student studied the diet, distribution and threats to small-clawed otters in Palawan Island, The Philippines.

There’s lot more to do as the island sees an increase in mining activities and otters are captured for trade. As we chatted in the Science Canteen, we decided to raise awareness about the otters in Palawan by starting a webpage, http://palawanotters.wordpress.com

While Lyca is here, we’ll see if she can catch a glimpse of our smooth-coated otters at Pasir Ris or Lorong Halus. That’ll be a treat!
