Village Talk: River Otters!

April 28 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

 April’s Village Talk presents:

River Otters! Back on the Bay Area Map.

River otters are charismatic carnivores, and make wonderful ambassadors for river and  wetland

conservation efforts. Yet, little is known about their population range and seasonal eating habits in the Bay Area.

The River Otter Ecology Project has taken on the challenge of discovering and documenting their ecological niche, with the goal of informing land use decisions and preserving habitat for these lively aquatic mammals.

 

Join the River Otter Ecology Project as they discuss what’s known, what needs to be discovered, and just how we manage to research elusive, secretive mammals who slide into the water and disappear when approached.  We’ll show slides and videos from our ottercams, and discuss the project and the role that citizen science plays in this otterly exciting work!
