Otter Birthday Bash at the NC Aquarium - Saturday, March 28th 9am-5pm

Eno the otter is turning seven years old! And his roommates, Pungo and Neuse, are now the big one-o, as in 10. At the annual Otter Birthday Bash, celebrate the furry fun the otters have given Aquarium visitors over the years, as well as the conservation success story of their species. The River Otter exhibit and the birthday bash highlight the comeback of otters in North Carolina. They had all but disappeared from the state at one time due to over-hunting for their luxurious fur, and loss of habitat due to development and pollution. Thanks to conservation measures and reintroduction efforts, they once again inhabit waterways throughout the state. American river otters were once nearly extinct in North Carolina due to overharvesting, habitat destruction and pollution. Otter Birthday Bash activities are free with admission or membership.
