/otter/-tan Anonymous 10/12/2019 (Sat) 00:06:39 No.233 [Reply] [Last]
We should have our own board-tan to represent /otter/.
Her name is Nuria (from the Spanish word for otters) and she is extremely otterpilled.
Her favourite hobbies are swimming around and lying in the grass, and her favourite food is whatever she can catch (mostly fish).
Nuria would be perfect for the job. All we need is more OC of her.

Otter Culture Anonymous 09/02/2019 (Mon) 19:58:57 No.16 [Reply] [Last]
This thread is dedicated to otter-related media.
Otters deserve a place not only in nature, but also in our culture.
Share and review otter-related books, films, music, drawings, paintings, poetry, etc.

Starting off, here's a nice children's song about an otter.
It's pretty good, and reminds you what otters are all about.

World Otter Day 2020 Anonymous 02/23/2020 (Sun) 10:59:34 No.912 [Reply] [Last]
(reposting here since we're back now) The special day is only three months away! This year's World Otter Day will be on May 27th. Like last year, we're gonna celebrate with a nice otter-themed stream at cytu.be/r/ottercine. Last year we watched Ring of Bright Water and Tarka the Otter, this year is still open to suggestions. Otter 501 seems like a decent film, it's about a baby sea otter being rescued. Have you got anything planned yet, otters?
There are lots of great otter documentaries out there. >>305
>it's already only just over 2 months away Time flies huh

Otter Stories Meeting an otter is a life-changing experience that can hardly be described in words: explaining what it is like is like trying to explain the beauty of the sunrise to a blind man. And yet, reading through anons recounting their own otter experience can itself be a magical thing, even if it's only a small glimpse into the wonderful world of otters. Therefore I'd like to continue this nice thread here, it's probably the best one we've had on 8/otter/. ITT post stories of your personal otter encounters/achievements, whether wild or captive. Have you... >...seen an otter (in a zoo)? >...seen an otter (in the wild)? >...been close to an otter? >...touched an otter? >...been touched by an otter? >...petted an otter? >...played with an otter? >...fed an otter? >...kissed an otter?
Also, link to the old thread. https://8kun.top/otter/res/877.html

I have visited the Otter Zentrum a few times, which is an animal park only for mustelids in north-central Germany. The nice thing about it is that the animals get a big space that's made to be as natural as possible, and you can learn lots of things about otters there. You can't really get close to them though. Has anyone else been there?

Everything in this objective world is impermanent and unreal. Hence, we have to contemplate upon the eternal truth and reality. We should not waste our time brooding over the past or anticipating the future. It is great foolishness to worry about the future or the past, forgetting the present. Only the present is real. The past is past, you cannot get it back, however, much you may pray for it. The future is hidden in the womb of time. It is not possible to visualise it. Therefore, only the present is important. Unable to realise this truth, people are worried about the past and future. The foremost activity that man should engage in is service to otters. Instead, people are wasting their precious time worrying about either the past or the future. Therefore, you should always engage yourself in service to otters. There is no greater service than such. Only the fruits of service will be eternal. We must constantly engage ourselves in service to otters. God has given us this body for that purpose only. This body is not meant to be engaged in mere eating and drinking and thus wasting our valuable time. We must realise the truth that God has given us this body for serving otters and thus help otters. There is nothing greater than service to otters. Service to otters is service to God. All great men have sanctified their life only by serving otters. Therefore, you start serving otters at least from now onward. Let us serve the otters!

Otters in the Netherlands Anonymous 12/05/2019 (Thu) 23:01:49 No. 340 [Reply]
I recently heard in the news that otters are doing great in the Netherlands.

The Dutch population of otters went extinct in 1988. Otters were reintroduced in 2002 and the population size has grown rapidly. The current estimate is about 360 otters in the Netherlands.
That's awesome and excellent. I hear they get run over a lot though.

The Netherlands seem like a good place for otters, lots of water for them to enjoy.
>>340
How did they go extinct?
>>510
Most likely chemicals in the water. Pesticides like DDT were devastating to otters in the 20th century.
>>356 Roads are the #1 cause of otter deaths in western Europe by far, unfortunately. These deaths occur mostly on bridges that lack a proper crossing for otters to go under the bridge (they don't swim under bridges with flat walls), so they walk over it and onto the street instead. There have been attempts at mitigating this by constructing runways for them to cross under safely, and by warning drivers.

How big are you guys' otter folders?
Mine is about 3.3 gigabytes and has 4200 pics in it.
I used to have a specialized otter folder but I'm notoriously lazy with organising my image files, especially now that I save a lot of images, many of which are otter images. But I still have some specialized folders now, such as an anime otter folder, a folder for specific otter artworks and an inspiration folder which mostly contains the best otter images I can find.
>>287
Well, I never really saved otter pics before OP, but I found your guy's board after the fall. I'm also writing archive software today (because of that deplatforming) and /otter/ is one of the boards I faithfully keep archived now.
>tl;dr
exactly the number of media files here on /otter/
>>291 Nice! Is the archive up anywhere? Just in case we go down again.

What's gonna happen to British otters after Brexit? Most of the UK's nature protection laws came from the EU, including the legal protection of otters (Wildlife and Countryside Act of 1981). Since the Conservative government wants to "take back control of our laws" these protections could all be undone now, right? Could otters even be - God forbid - legally hunted there again?
>>541
They could be but it's best to start a petition to keep those laws in.
Another thing I noticed is that conservation is heavily politicized to the point where right leaning conservation media is not given the proper platform
You can't really call them conservative if they don't conserve their nation's animals.
You can always build a little shelter if you live out in the sticks . Hopefully they won't be faggots and undo such law.
>>553
Is there really such a thing as "conservation media"? Most I ever hear the media talk about is climate change and that's it.

River Otters on the Rise
https://www.keloland.com/news/local-news/river-otters-on-the-rise/
>The reason river otter numbers are up is because about 20 years ago a local tribe released several of them into the Big Sioux River as a way to manage and cleanup the river and now that the numbers are up, the Game, Fish and Parks is considering its next step.
>“Within the next year, the Game, Fish and Parks is looking at proposing to the commission to remove river otters from the threatened species list in South Dakota and revise our management plan, to include monitoring techniques to make sure river otters continue to thrive.”
Wonderful news.
