Terry Nutkins Opens Otter Creek

On Tuesday 20th August 2002, The Scottish SEA LIFE Sanctuary officially opened Otter Creek, with the help of Terry Nutkins.

Terry lost two fingers to an angry Otter when he was 15 years old and a protégé of the late Ring of Bright Water author Gavin Maxwell, but this has failed to dampen Terry´s enthusiasm for otters.

The Otters had decided to build a new holt under a tree, and the staff thought they would not come out to meet Terry, but Sula finally thought it was time to eat, and came out to be fed.

Otter Creek has rivers cascading from the deep diving pool across the naturally landscaped enclosure through several open shallow pools giving a tremendous environment for these fascinating creatures.
