Red River Zoo to build river otter exhibit

FARGO – The Red River Zoo has scheduled a news conference at 10:30 a.m. Thursday to announce plans to build a new North American river otter exhibit starting this summer.

The exhibit will initially house two North American river otters that were displaced from their den last month along the Sheyenne River north of Fargo, a release stated.

A fundraising campaign is under way to raise the remaining funds to build the exhibit, which is estimated to cost $550,000.

Part of the campaign will include the opportunity to name the otters for $15,000 each.
