Otter Oasis Open At Oceanarium!

Bournemouth's Oceanarium celebrates the official opening of its new mammal enclosure - Otter Oasis!

The £150,000 waterfront penthouse for Bea and Buster the oriental otters officially opens on Saturday May 28th, in time for the half term holidays.

Come and see them at the new mammal enclosure

It's been built by a 30-strong team from Christchurch-based Stan Rendell and Co Ltd and Weymouth-based Aquarium Technology Ltd.

The purpose built enclosure includes a filtered pool, waterfalls and flowing streams - James Eels, UK Director at Parques Reunidos, which incorporates the Oceanarium, says:

"We are all very excited about this new enclosure, particularly as it will be the attraction's first mammal display. It's been built to replicate a natural habitat and allows the otters to express their natural behaviours."
