Why Swim With Otters?

Nurtured By Nature and Animal Educators is committed to fostering a love for animals through interactive programs, which bring the public face to face with unique animals, in a safe and controlled environment. It is only through a bond with our planets animals that we, as co-dwellers, will feel a heightened sense of responsibility to ensure their preservation.
