Sadly, the river otter is currently experiencing population loss due to human activities. River otters are threatened by habitat loss, fragmentation, and degradation, as well as being caught in fishing nets. However, their numbers have not yet diminished to the point of becoming classified as vulnerable, and they are currently considered a species of least concern by the IUCN.
