Nemo in Easter Egg

Why not give your friends and family something different for Easter, such as an Otter Adoption. These are all available along with various other ottery gifts at the Ottershop.

So your conscience will be clear that you are giving a calorie-free gift which also helps the otters.

13 March 2018 - Aeris and Beatha move outside

Submitted by: Grace

The weather is now a lot milder so we decided to move Aeris and Beatha outside to a nursery pen.

Beatha and Aeris outside

As you can see, they were quick to explore their new enclosure and Aeris was straight into the pool.

They are next door to Uisge so there has been quite a lot of "ottery" conversation going on between them.

It is so nice to see them enjoy the weather and much more space.

Submitted by: Grace

There's a lot in the latest e-update which you can find here

As always there is a mix of good and not so good news. Sadly we have to tell you that Nemo, Wolfgang Gettmann's Asian small clawed otter died aged 12 years. On the positive side, Omar Al-Sheikhly is doing a great job caring for a rare Mzxwell's Otter cub in Iraq.

There snippets of ottery information from the UK and abroad and the kids' website, TEAM OTTER, has a caption competition.
