MURRELLS INLET, SC (WMBF) – Brookgreen Gardens has successfully funded a specialized crate to help transport their otters to other zoos around the country.
An update from the project's GoFundMe page confirms that second, all-aluminum crate was successfully funded, with $3,300 of the $3,225 goal raised.
Brookgreen's Native Wildlife Zoo participates in an Association of Zoos and Aquariums-managed breeding program with North American river otters, which ships otters back and forth with other zoos, according to a post by the Murrells Inlet attraction. The "otter-tested" crate will be in service for years.
