No Otters

Again.  The last time I visited the Point Defiance Aquarium the sea otters weren’t in their exhibit.  Today, again, I was disappointed.  They are my favorite wild animal and Pt. Defiance has the 2nd best exhibit of the ones I’ve seen on the West Coast (I like Vancouver BC best).

Edit [see my comment below]

I visited the Zoo & Aquarium free using my reciprocal entry from Museum of Flight for National Volunteer Week.  There is a long list of places that are letting each others’ volunteers in for free this week.  Many of them I’m already a member or have reciprocal admission from a membership.

I didn’t wander very far as it looked like it might rain.  I did a quick sketch of the red wolves.


A few more photos here.

    I just remembered. It wasn’t the last time I was at Pt. Defiance that the otters weren’t there. It was my first visit to Woodland Park Zoo during last year’s Volunteer Week that their otter enclosure was empty!

    I’d be disappointed if the otters were missing too. Nice sketch of the wolves.
