The Waiting Game

Hello to all of our valued supporters.

Our male and female otter continue to interact well however we are not seeing any signs of breeding. Our zoologists think this may be because the male is still relatively young. A closed camera monitoring research project has begun, led by one of our veterinarians, to observe the animals without disturbing them. The goal of this project is to see whether any progress is being made towards our breeding goal, and if so, how long this process takes. The information gleaned will be useful for future breeding efforts.

In addition, we are in the process of arranging the transfer of a new pair of otters (a male and a female) from Kharkov in the Ukraine. Because transporting animals across state borders is heavily regulated, this may take some time as all of the formalities must be adhered to. It is hoped that expansion of the breeding core will benefit this conservation program.

Stay tuned for more news soon.

Warmly,

Team Otter at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo
