In 2004, the Foundation approved a challenge grant to assist the Staten Island Zoological Society in raising funds to build a new exhibit.

The RCSF North American River Otter Exhibit is an outdoor exhibit that provides viewing areas both on land and underwater of otters in their natural environment. The exhibit today is home for otters, Shirley and Lewis, playful performers that delight audiences with their near constant antics. The lively otter pair can be viewed from above the pool’s surface, or below, where an entertaining aquatic ballet unfolds.
