As we are nearing the middle of our fifth year we have gotten to save thousands of wild animals. While is it impossible for us to share every case we work on with you there are some cases we cannot wait to share. We wish that we could find a way for you to experience first-hand just how amazing the animals we have the honor of working with are. Many of the animals we have helped have also helped us in opening new doors and fortifying our amazing network of organizations working to conserve wildlife.

One of the species that has gotten a lot of notoriety is the North American River Otter kits. Over the past three years we have had the privilege of working hands on with several kits. One such kit, Olive”r”, provided us with the opportunity to partner with Denver Marine Aquarium to give Olive a forever home. This year, another such partnership bond with Clearwater Marine Aquarium who brought us Abe, a celebrity himself after being rescued from a commercial location where he was found alone alongside a wall that separated a business property from the street. Our conservation partners are not the only ones who helped in supporting these cases, you as fans also provide constant support that allow us to continue our work conserving wildlife.

Our otters are now weaned and in their outdoor enclosure with a den and pond stocked with live fish. Learning the skills they will need to survive and be independent in the wild include catching live fish and lots of them. Caring for these young otter kits has been an exciting experience and being able to watching them via the Live Otter Cam, playing, swimming, catching and eating fish has been a real treat made possible by our followers donations. We appreciate your continued support.
