Otter Adoption

Adopt an otter to make a difference for sea otters.

As a 100% volunteer-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit, we guarantee that all donations go directly and specifically to help sea otters recover in their Pacific Ocean habitats. Your sea otter adoption or river otter adoption completely benefits sea otters. Here is how.   Each year, Sea Otter Foundation & Trust (SOFT) gives funding awards to sea otter biologists and sea otter conservation and education programs. Click here to learn more!
