River Otter Giving

We did it!  Aquarium of the Bay opened "River Otters: Watershed Ambassadors" in June 2013 with the help of generous supporters like you.  But your support is still needed.

Protect. Restore. Inspire.
Our mission is to protect, restore and inspire conservation of San Francisco Bay and its watershed, from the Sierra to the sea.

River otters perfectly demonstrate the interconnectedness of our headwaters, rivers, delta, and ocean. Your gift will support river otters and their habitat throughout California through our education, policy and advocacy efforts. 
 
Your support of the Aquarium’s river otter exhibit will bring you into a small circle of supporters we affectionately call our Otter Den.  

Join today!

All gifts of $1,000 or more will be acknowledged with all of the benefits of our President’s Circle membership, which include:

  • Full year of unlimited admission to the Aquarium for 2 named adults, a guest, and 2 children under 18
