Through Shedd Aquarium Sustainable Partnership

Prairie Grass Cafe is offering a otter-ly delicious special dinner on the 1st. Dining like the otters.

The dinner special features Pollack in a Panko Breadcrumb Crust with a Crab Butter Sauce ($26) - a portion of the sale will go to the Shedd. 

In keeping with Prairie Grass Cafe's mission, the restaurant continues its Sustainable Fish Fry, every Thursday and Friday. Fish & Chips entrées are available at lunch and dinner. The prices vary depending on what's in season and fresh on any particular day.

According the Shedd, it costs nearly $20,000 to feed their otters for a year. Sea otters eat 25 percent of their body weight daily. That's equivalent to our eating 25 or more one-pound burgers a day!

Keeping up with their diet is expensive. In one day, the Shedd's largest otter, Yaku, eats more than 5 pounds of clams, almost 1 pound of both capelin and squid and more than 2 pounds of both shrimp and Pollack.

For nearly 50 years, Shedd has helped in the rescue and rehabilitation of animals in urgent need, including sea otters from the Exxon Valdez oil spill in 1989 and their beloved pup Luna, whom they welcomed last year after she was stranded off the coast of California.

That's why this #GivingTuesday, #YouOtterGive to Shedd to support these furry mammals with a healthy appetite.Dining at Prairie Grass Cafe will help.

Dive into this new tradition of generosity by donating to the Shedd today. Learn more about how #YouOtterGive and following the Shedd on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook for updates!
