[River Otters]

It is with great sadness that the Sanctuary has to announce the loss of much loved otter, Lewis.

In the wild otters usually live for 10 years, however, Lewis was 13 years old and remained active and fun with a mischievous personality throughout his time in the Sanctuary.

Unfortunately Lewis passed away on 22nd July 2018 due to a degenerative condition caused by arthritis.
Lewis Lewis arrived at the Sanctuary in 2011 from a Zoo in Bristol and quickly became a favourite amongst the visitors.

He will be sadly missed by visitors and all of the team who have known and cared for Lewis for the last seven years.
