Helping ZooTeen Leaders put the spotlight on otters

Recently this year I was asked to help out a few of our ZooTeen Leaders by getting footage of the otters to be used in a conservation film.

Jack Fox, Aditya Tangirala and Eli Wipf then put together this video to educate people about the importance of the river otter to local ecosystems.

Our two female river otters, Heather and Sara helped by hamming it up for the camera and showing off their natural behaviors!




ZooTeen Leaders have  submitted their film to the Rochester Teen Film Festival. Finalists’ videos will be screened at 5:30 p.m on Wednesday, August 5, 2015 on the main screen at the Little Theatre in downtown Rochester. Good luck to the ZooTeen Leaders and we hope to see you at the festival!
