Sea Otter Awareness Week

ottsm37This week (27 Sep – 3 Oct 2009) is Sea Otter Awareness Week, a campaign developed and organized by Defenders of Wildlife highlighting the ecology, interesting informational tidbits, and details of threats to sea otter populations throughout the world.

In our own backyard here in California, activities highlighting issues related to the Southern sea otter include lectures at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Aquarium of the Pacific, UC Santa Cruz and SeaWorld San Diego (all OWCN Member organizations), as well as other informational and entertaining programs at many other sites.

ottsm01For a full list of all activities here in CA as well as throughout the world, please go to the Defenders of Wildlife Sea Otter Awareness page. After all, the more we know about the animals we are attempting to help, and the more we get the public to understand the challenges this sensitive marine species faces, the better care we can give to these critical species during oil spills in the future!
