Otters Create Valentine's Day Artwork for Charity at New Hampshire Aquarium
Marina Yu Phillips 기자
A heartwarming display of creativity is underway at the Living Shores Aquarium in Glen, New Hampshire, as a group of talented otters put their artistic skills to the test for a charitable cause.
Meet Harry, Teddy, Peanut, Jelly, and Saco — five Asian small-clawed otters who have been hard at work crafting Valentine's Day paintings. Using their paws and otter-safe paint, these adorable creatures have created 10 unique pieces of art and 25 Ottergrams, providing them with a fun and enriching activity.
The aquarium is hosting an online auction where fans can bid on these charming otter-crafted paintings until February 19, with all proceeds going directly to the Tin Mountain Conservation Center. This nonprofit organization focuses on providing educational programs to promote awareness and understanding of the natural environment.
In addition to the auction, the Living Shores Aquarium is giving fans the opportunity to win their very own Ottergram valentine. Winners will be selected on February 20, adding an extra touch of joy to the Valentine's Day celebrations.
This heartwarming initiative follows a previous viral moment when the otter residents celebrated Thanksgiving at the aquarium. In a heartwarming video, the otters enjoyed a festive meal curated by their caretakers, featuring fishy alternatives to traditional Thanksgiving dishes, all carefully selected to ensure the otters' safety and enjoyment.
From mahi-mahi with mussel gravy to a sardine lattice topping on their otter kibble pie dessert, the otters savored a feast designed with their natural diet in mind, adding a delightful twist to the holiday season.
As these adorable otters continue to capture hearts with their creativity and charm, they remind us of the importance of conservation efforts and the joy that comes from giving back to nature.
