A few weeks ago, we introduced you to this African clawless otter (Aonyx capensis) who was kept illegally as a pet, and confiscated by the local SPCA. While in captivity, this little otter cub was fed the incorrect diet.
During the past few weeks, it was critical for us to ensure that we provided her with the right nutrition to ensure that she would grow and meet all the necessary developmental milestones. We asked you to assist us, with our One Meal campaign, which helped us greatly! She is still receiving bottles, however, she is slowly being weaned off her bottles as she consumes (and becomes more interested) in eating tilapia!
A MASSIVE thank you to Fisheries Hartbeespoort for donating all the fish an otter could possibly need! We have received unwavering donations and assistance from Fisheries HBP, and we cannot thank you enough!
We treat indigenous animals free of charge, relying solely on the donations and support of our community.
