NATURE: Charlie and the Curious Otters Otters can be found on nearly every continent, but their amazing and powerful physical abilities are surprisingly unknown to us. Covering up to 25 miles a day on ground and swimming a quarter mile without coming up for air, otters are the ultimate predator on both land and water. But they are also endangered. They fear people and remain elusive as otters are hunted for sport and fur. However, otters are survivors - not one of 13 otter species have become extinct. Otter conservationist and wildlife filmmaker Charlie Hamilton James follows the story of three, inquisitive river otter orphans in Wisconsin and visits otters all over the globe - from a tame Asian small-clawed otter living in Somerset, England to the river otters of Peru's Amazon to the Alaskan sea otters. Join Charlie on his expedition as he captures never-seen-before behavior of curious otters on footage and uncovers the secrets to their survival using some groundbreaking experiments, cool cameras, and anatomical CGI.
VIDEO USAGE RIGHTS
Why the AV version? Because it provides additional usage options for PBS videos. AV versions come with limited performance rights so they can be shown in classrooms, at PTA meetings, during after school programs, and transmitted on a closed-circuit system within a building or on a single campus. They also can be enjoyed in admission-free public screenings, which also makes them ideal for use by library patrons and businesses involved in community clubs and organizations.
