A world map of otter conservation activities, projects, NGOs etc. It's still in development as of now. Please try it out and tell me if it works for you or if there's any bugs.

I'd like this to be a complete and up to date overview of all our activities, so this thread is also a place to share suggestions, updates and submissions. If you have anything you'd like to see on the map please post it in this thread and I'll add it!

Wow, this is really cool. Otterchat is really growing to encompass some cool ideas, and I think it's just super cool :feelsgood:

Seems like it works, as far as I can tell, although it might be cool if there could be some sort of a way to see what conservation each dot represents? I don't know how tough that would be though

Good idea, I could add some kind of key to differentiate them, maybe using different shapes or colors...

  • Added key (circle = OSG membership, square = otter project/NGO/etc.)
  • Improved zoom feature

WWF-Hong Kong has launched an otter conservation project in Hong Kong, with a focus in the stronghold Mai Po Nature Reserve and Deep Bay wetlands. We are working with a multi-faceted approach to collect more scientific information about the population and spatial use of otters through collaboration, engagement and public education. Our works cover camera trapping, sign survey, genetic analyses, conservation dog trial, citizen science and a series of awareness-raising activities with various partners.
