This Year has been Otterly Crazy!
We were awarded a grant from Seaworld Busch Garden Conservation Fund which allowed us to finish building the outdoor enclosure complete with a pond fitted with a state of the art filtration system in just one week. Here the otter kits can swim and learn to catch live fish, a skill they must master before considered releasable. Thanks to your support and donations we were able to feed this hungry group who started on formula three times a day and quickly advanced to prescription Science Diet A/D supplemented with small fish. Now that our otters are weaned and in their enclosure learning the skills they will need to survive and be independent in a few more days they require live fish, and lots of them. We appreciate you continued support.
Since they will be with us a little longer then most cases we have decided to give them their very own section of the website. In this section you will be able to read the ‘Otters’ Blog’, watch the live otter cam, view their YouTube videos, and find ways to help provide support for their care.
The scheduled release is for June 2nd 2018 and we would love to see you there. The actual release is private but we will be staging the release in the parking lot at Werner-Boyce Salt Springs Park where you can have a chance to say good-bye. Visit the blog for details.
