Sea Otter Awareness Week 2019

Become sea otter aware beginning September 22

The start of Sea Otter Awareness Week brings about excitement regarding what is new in the world of sea otters.   Will it bring people together to discuss advancements in research; a conservation initiative or an educational effort?  One can never tell.  

Much of the week can be participated in online, but for the most ardent of sea otter fans, lectures are available, extra educational talks are included with regular admission at zoos and aquariums in the United States, Canada & Europe while kayak tours appreciating sea otters and their habitat are often offered in California or Alaska.

Follow our activities during the week here and on our Sea Otter Awareness Week page.
