Ozokwenza

After a short presentation of ourselves, I'll introduce some basic rules and give a speech about otter biology, ecology and behavior.

We'll then start walking on the track of otters, using our imagination to put ourselves in otters' shoes to spot their presence signs (e.g., footprints, scats).

You'll be able to learn how to:
- recognize otter signs;
- record any finding on iNaturalist (a Citizen Science platform) - while drinking a cup of tea;
- use your senses to smell otter scats, whose odor is diagnostic (i.e., it allows to identify the species).

This is thought to be an outdoor activity as interactive and social as possible. As such, guests are warmly welcomed to actively participate together!

I cannot guarantee that we'll actually find otter signs (otters are intelligent animals and as such they behave differently depending on season, weather, level of hungriness, etc), but I'll do my best!

What I can surely guarantee, nonetheless, is my knowledge and enthusiasm. Moreover, I'll be your "almost-local" friend, instead of a commercial tour guide, which means you could ask me anything and everything about otters as well as Lisbon city life.
Altre cose da tenere a mente
I'll bring some tea (limited), but please feel free to bring on your own reserve of water and snickers if you wish so.

The activity is open and suitable to any person, of any age and physical condition.

Hi! I am Lorenzo, an Italian researcher based in Portugal since several years and most importantly a worldwide recognized expert of Otters, of which I'm absolutely passionate about!

I hold a PhD from Rome University on Otter Ecology and Behavior and 5 years of post-doc research on Semiaquatic Mammals at CIBIO. Feel free to check my website: https://bit.ly/2Vq0d33

Along the years, I acquired considerable experience in understanding otter behavior, spending several hours in the field trying to observe these fascinating animals and many times being lucky!

A keen traveler myself, I love interacting with new people, communicating Science in an accessible way and exchanging stories!

P.S. I also host "Otter Talks" and "Otter Spotting in Évora" here on Airbnb, so be sure to check these out as well!

Lapho uzoba khona

We'll meet in front of the main entrance of the Oceanário, at Parque das Nações, Lisbon.

From there, we'll go to a nearby spot, along the River Tagus, which I know is often visited by otters (in fact, I conducted there several excursions bringing people to find otter signs), where we'll perform our activity.
