Illegal Otter Trade : An analysis of seizures in selected Asian countries (1980-2015)

Document (PDF, 2MB) by Lalita Gomez, Boyd T. C. Leupen,
Meryl Theng, Katrina Fernandez and Melissa Savage (July 2016). TRAFFIC. Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia. ISBN no: 978-983-3393-49-7.

This study is an analysis of otter seizure data during the period 1980 to July 2015 inclusive, for four species of otter in Asia ; the Eurasian Otter Lutra lutra, the Hairy-nosed Otter Lutra sumatrana, the Small-clawed Otter Aonyx cinereus and the Smooth-coated Otter Lutrogale perspicillata. The illegal wildlife trade poses a direct threat to all four species as they are popular for their fur and increasingly for their supposed qualities as pets.
