The Otters' body is perfectly adapted to natural life around rivers and lakes – so long as they remain free of intrusion by " human civilisation", which dumps poison and trash into rivers and builds soulless concrete structures around natural waterways so that no life can thrive. These animals also have the world's thickest fur with 140 000 hairs on their body per square inch. Hence they've also been widely hunted for their precious, soft and warm fur, further contributing to their extinction.

Even though over time, the number of Otters in Europe has been slowly recovering, there is still much to be done. Humans, especially f*shermen, in their selfish quest for more money or even just for fun, are deliberately trapping and killing endangered otters. In the past 100 years, their numbers have rapidly fallen and what was once a common sight across the world, is now a rare and endagered species. All this even while world governments and international organisations have been trying to enforce measures to protect their habitat.

Clearly, those efforts from politicans and volunteers hasn't been enough. More action is required right now if we ever want to save this gift of nature. This is why the world needs Otter Extremism. It's time to get extreme about saving the otter. About preventing intrusion into his habitat, and giving him enough natural space to survive. This world is big enough. I hope you are, too.

The truth is that if the Otter disappeared from this planet, we would have lost another of the earth's fascinating species. If the otter is wiped out at the hands of us humans, then how shall we comfort ourselves, the murderers of all murderers?

>WE ARE THEIR VOICE! We must spread the word and encourage others to become involved and aware of the situation for otters in the environment and the delicate balance of their survival.

Now that's the problem I have with IOSF.

"Spreading the word" is a code-word for doing nothing.

It's the mentality of "I'm gonna go tell people and someone else will take action for me, so I don't have to do anything myself."

Indeed there isn't a word on that page about what it actually means "to become involved", or how one would go about it.

At best it'll end up as an endless chain of people telling other people to get involved, who then go and tell yet other people to get involved.

And none of these people will actually become 'involved' in anything.

Well, lets say we succeed and everyone is aware of the problem. Then what? Will anything change? Probably not.

The masses are passive and docile. If the message reaches them one day it will be forgotten the next morning, in favour of the more mundane things. It is a waste of time to try and get them on our side. At best, they are good for a few donations.

There is no strength in numbers. The decisive strength is in those few that are willing to take action.

The ones determined to fight and toil for the Otter are the ones that make a difference.

It's not people whose idea of activism is clicking Like on Facebook, or using a hashtag, or buying £10 T-shirts.

IOSF however, don't seem to encourage any other kind of activity than that.

I've read through their website and under the "How You Can Help" section, all they tell you to do is give them money, and nothing else.

Every category boils down to the same thing.

Which is exactly what IOSF wants. That's literally the purpose of the organization: Collecting donations from supporters for their various projects.

The actual work is done by specialists and professionals. Not cunts who need a charity website to tell them to wipe their own ass.

A 3rd person shooter/platformer.

You gotta master the platforming to get an edge in the combat through positioning and jukes.

Swimming through rivers gives you a speed advantage and you can use the momentum to leap out of the water for bullet time.

Weaponry is varied and situational, and I want to make sure to balance it to discourage cover shooting as much as possible because that's a lame way to play. Clever, skillful and tactical movement should be as important for the battle as the weapn itself.

I know of even more anime with otters now. I forgot Fables of the Green Forest had Joe Otter and Harry Mink (another otter like creature), and the otter in Bosco Adventure.

Then I watched Katanagatari, which has animal based ninjas including an otter. One Piece has Mr. 13, but that's such a long ass series I'll probably never watch it entirely.

Furthermore I still have to watch Cute High Earth Defense Club: Happy Kiss and Onyankopon.

I also watched Free: Eternal Summer, whose character Momotaro is nicknamed the Sea Otter.

How do you explain to someone what an Otter is? How do you put it into words? You can't, because the Otter causes every word in every language and every dialect to pause in a state of paralysis, unable to illustrate the magnificence of this particular animal. Otters are what brings happiness to the hearts of so many people even though they have never encountered one. An animal which can not be compared to any other animal that we know of. This is an animal which has made people smile in the most grievous of circumstances. Just merely thinking about Otters is enough to raise the burden from the burdened, and it is enough to replace the sorrow within the hearts with happiness. Otter is enough to liberate man from stress, sadness and depression. Why? Because Otters are life. They're every day, everything that you do, everything you wish to do, everything you dream, everything you are and aspire to be, the people that you meet, everywhere you go; all of that is Otters. So Otters are never just one thing, they're everything. Whenever I see an Otter my heart starts being faster and I cannot stop staring, this is how immensely and indescribably beautiful the Otter is. After a short time I begin feeling high, and even when I manage to take my eyes away I still can't ever stop thinking about them. Otters put me in a blissful state.

What do you think the future will hold for the otter? Short-term and long term?

Should Man go extinct, I believe they'll be able to replace us.

They can stand upright, have forward-facing eyes, and are able to use tools.

Some of them (smooth-coated, giant etc) live and hunt in groups where they're able to communicate and coordinate with each other.

Perhaps they'll go through the same kind of development that primates did when they became humans. Perhaps they'll develop better communication skills, maybe even a sort of language comparable to that of dolphins. Maybe they'll make more complicated tools, maybe even discover fire. I'd like to believe that could happen.

Of course, that's assuming we don't kill them all before that happens.

Sure these particular animals might seem content as pets since it's the only life they know, but it's still not a good situation. When idiots see these videos and think "wow, I'm gonna get one!" but don't know how to feed and take care of an otter and lack the kind of space it needs, they end up hurting the animal and hurting themselves.

The fact is that otters are not pets, they are not domestic, they are wild animals and will behave as wild animals do. So these kinds of videos promote and encourage negative things.
