Our new and improved River Otter rehabilitation enclosure now has much more square-footage for added enrichment and exercise to hone their swimming, hunting, hiding and climbing skills while they are here in training preparation for their release back into the wild.

It boasts a waterfall, a rock climbing wall, den/cave/climbing areas behind the waterfall to hide in and explore, a 20' tree with big branches to climb on, a slide down into a pool from one of the tree limbs, and so much more.

We now have more “Otter” space than most zoos, and ANY other otter
rehab facility we are aware of anywhere!
