Exciting news! We have added a new North American river otter pup to our family - please welcome, OLIVER! Earlier this month, Oliver approached a patron at a gas station in Tampa, FL who immediately rescued the frantic pup. He was then transferred to Owl's Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife, who has been taking care of the otter with hopes of finding a promising home for him. After careful consideration and research, Owl’s Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife has found a forever home for the otter pup at Downtown Aquarium. Oliver began his trek from Tampa through Memphis this last week aboard a FedEx jet! FedEx team, Denver International Airport and Owl’s Nest Sanctuary for Wildlife, we cannot even begin to say thank you enough! Oliver is settling in, swimming, eating and being his playful self! Stay tuned for more information on when you can come meet him! Video Courtesy of FedEx
Oliver spent his first week at the aquarium exploring new toys, swimming, and learning new behaviors!
