When a baby otter was separated from his family - nicknamed the Marina 9 by Singapore's devoted otter-watching community - one man found himself literally jumping into action to save the young otter's life.
Once veterinarians believed Toby was strong enough to return to the wild, he was taken to a beach area where members of OtterWatch, along with WRS and the National Parks (NParks), determined Toby had a better chance of linking back up with his family.
At first, the otter pup was kept in a carrier - but when Toby didn't leave the carrier or cry, he was taken out of the carrier and left alone on the sand. It was only then that Toby began to cry loudly.
"The rescue and reintroduction of Toby has demonstrated an unprecedented collaboration and 'make-it-happen' spirit between members of the public and across multiple agencies," Jeffery Teo, a member of OtterWatch, told the Straits Times. "Everyone puts in their best, not for pride nor glory. We just want to bring Toby home. This is humanity at its best form."
NParks and WRS are reportedly still watching over Toby to make sure he doesn't get rejected from his family.
But so far, things appear to be going well for this beloved little otter and his equally adored family.
