After the sad death of one of our males, our team continues to work towards breeding success for this locally endangered species.
Our zoological team has successfully introduced our remaining male to both females in our breeding center. The team monitors the otters via infrared camera during night hours as these animals are nocturnal. Unfortunately, no pregnancy has yet resulted.
In the meanwhile, visitors to the breeding center see the male active in the water (see video below) and continue to be educated by our signage, guides and keeper talks about the importance of saving our precious aquatic habitats and the creatures that call them home.
