The NEW Zoo and Adventure Park in Suamico invited residents to learn more about otters in honor of World Otter Day.
Community members learned about the 13 different species of otters in the world from experts.
Visitors could also hang out with the resident otters at the zoo.
There were plenty of activities for children to learn how to save otters in our region.
A local zookeeper explained why it is important to learn about these otter species and keep them safe.
“Out of the 13 species only a couple of them are actually stable with their numbers,” says Drew Dinehart. “The other species are all near-threatened or endangered and it’s the usual causes, habitat loss, overhunting.”
There were also animal-themed crafts for sale to raise funds for the International Otter Survival Fund.
