Arno Gutleb, EditorDear Friends, Colleagues and Otter Enthusiasts!

We this editorial we start our first issue of 2017. I have received already enough papers to fill at least the first issue of 2017 provided that the reviewers accept the manuscripts that are currently under revision. I hope you all will keep coming back to our website and see what new manuscripts went online.

I want to express my thanks to all the efforts to of the reviewers to evaluate the manuscripts and to provide wherever possible positive comments to improve the manuscripts. However, I have to note that submission to the IUCN OSG Bulletin clearly does not guarantee publication and that manuscripts have been rejected and will be rejected if the science is below standards. Since I thanked the reviewers the last time personally Aadrean, Michael Belanger, Laura Bonesi, Tom Brooks, Emmelianna Bujak, Oldemar Carvalho Junior, Will Duckworth, Nicole Duplaix, Morten Elmeros, Syed Ainul Hussain, Waseem Ahmad Khan, Chris Marnell, Fabiano de Melo, Fernanda Michalski, Darren Norris, Hiroshi Sasaki, Melissa Savage, Tom Serfass and Lesley Wright provided reviews for which I am very thankful. In addition I want to thank Sebastien Cambier, Claudio Chehebar, Helen Jaques, Servane Contal and Gerard Schmidt for the translations of the abstracts into French and Spanish in the last period.

It would be of real great support is some of you could provide us photos as we need good resolution pictures for the title page.

At the end of my note I have to say “Merci-Gracias-Danke” to Lesley who does an incredible job to put all your manuscripts online and whom I or you as authors bother to perform last minute or post-publishing changes if they are necessary. Lesley, thank you so much for all your efforts.
