The SPCA’s Wild Animal Rehabilitation Centre (ARC) team will have a lucky donor joining them to release some otters in the spring of 2018.
They ran a campaign where anybody who donated $50 or more to their wildlife rehab centre were entered to win a chance to hang out with the team while they release three super cute otters.
The winner was Kelly Letendre, an air traffic controller who works at YVR. “I was shocked to hear the news – I was super happy, of course, but we don’t really win a lot of things,” he says. “Nature and conservancy have always been very important to me – the otters are absolutely adorable and it will be great to see them released into their natural habitat.”
The centre doesn’t allow the public to visit as they don’t want to get wild creatures habituated before they release them but you can keep up with their hijinx at spca.bc.ca/crittercam
