30-09-2013 - Neotropical otter
The neotropical otter is one of the least studied otter species due to its discrete behavior and consequent low detectability in natural environment. This situation is aggravated in northeast region of Brazil, which appears as a gap in neotropical otters current distribution maps. This project aims to increase the knowledge related to Lontra longicaudis and its habitat preferences in northeastern Brazil, contributing to its conservation.
