From the good folk at Sentosa:

“Otters of Singapore” – A talk and sharing session
About the “water dogs” of Southeast Asia and their ‘return’ to Singapore.

About the talk – Smooth-coated otters have excited the Singapore public as they recolonise recovering habitats around the country. These strong swimming fish eaters are one of four species of otters in Southeast Asia, which are endangered or vulnerable throughout their range. In this talk, Otterman will introduce the biology of the animals, trace their occurrence in Singapore and explain the many intriguing sightings and observations the public have shared with him in recent years.

About the speaker – N. Sivasothi aka Otterman is a lecturer with the Department of Biological Sciences at the National University of Singapore where he teaches biodiversity and ecology. His cohort of research students (Otterman Holt) includes Ottergirl Meryl Theng and they investigate mammals, mangroves, wildlife conservation and human impact. A Research Associate of the Lee Kong Chian Natural History Museum, he coordinates the museum volunteer group, Toddycats! who play an active role in public education.
