Yay, a day to celebrate one of the earth’s most entertaining little creatures, the otter!
This day was started five years ago by the International Otter Survival Fund to raise awareness about otters as endangered species.
My son loved otters growing up and we have visited the river otters at The Houston Zoo multiple times and the sea otters at The New York Aquarium. He had several stuffed toy versions, books and room decorations. Our best otter product was his Halloween costume. I used a generic animal costume pattern, because of course, I couldn’t find a specific otter costume. It took some adapting, but I was thrilled with how it turned out (he even had a plastic fish).
