Otters are probably one of the most interesting mammals of freshwaters, maybe not so well known to children. Therefore, we designed diverting educational game for children, which played and guided by the educators, can provide younger generations an insight into unknown situations that otters could experience across the lake`s system. This social game is designed to be played at workshops that we are planning to implement, it is made completely out of the wood, and contains plates of otter`s males, females and cubs, and four different lakes: Prošćansko, Kozjak, Galovac and Kaluđerovac. These likable figurines will meet different situations, which will depend upon the numbers on dices. Our main goal with this game, is to familiarize the children with situations that could affect the otter`s survival and their habitat like input of non-native species, poaching, discharge of dangerous matters, climate change, disturbances at the habitat, species monitoring, the importance of sustaining the food chain and similar.
We are looking forward to play this educational game with our young ones and highlight the importance of conservation of the Plitvice lakes natural world.
