Part of our support team is the Otterbot. Perhaps you are asking yourself - What’s the deal with the otter?
We’re glad you asked. The friendly Commons otter is a fun way for you to ask questions and get the support you need. Over time, our otter will become more helpful, supporting you as you use new tools, linking you to relevant articles, and more. We picked the otter because:
- They’re awfully cute
- They are a keystone species: like us, they help connect a complex ecosystem.
Keystone species - are a species on which other species in an ecosystem largely depend, such that if it were removed the ecosystem would change drastically.
At Community Commons, we strive to connect the ecosystem by providing a platform for voices to be heard across the table:
- National and Local
- Policy Makers and Activists
- Neighbors and Urban Planners
