While they may not be native to Australia, otters have caught the attention of Kelso High Campus student Budjarn Lambeth.
Mr Lambeth, who is a year 12 student, is helping raise money and awareness to help protect 12 out of 13 species that are threatened by the face of extinction.
World Otter Day is held on May 31 each year and Mr Lambeth begun putting up posters around school on May 1.
He plans to a run a stall, selling otter print arts.
“I’m also looking to organise an interview with a Scottish otter expert,” he said.
“All proceeds made at the stall will go to the International Otter Survival Fund.”
Mr Lambeth passion for otters came after a visit to Dubbo’s Western Plains Zoo where he observed their playfulness.
A stall will be held at Kelso High Campus throughout the last week of May.
