Did you know sea otters are a keystone species? That means they play an important role in the overall health of an entire ecosystem. Sea otters help contain populations of sea urchins and crabs, allowing kelp and seagrasses to thrive and provide habitat to other species.
Unfortunately, southern sea otters are a threatened species due to a variety of factors, which is why The Marine Mammal Center has supported sea otter conservation for the last 25 years. Through our work, and that of our partners at the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, we are protecting sea otters for generations to come.
Join Dr. Heather Harris, Associate Veterinarian at The Marine Mammal Center, and Mike Harris, Sea Otter Biologist and Senior Environmental Scientist for California Department of Fish and Wildlife, to learn about their work with this species. What led to the southern sea otter’s status as a threatened species? How many are left and where are they found? What does the future of the southern sea otter species look like? Learn the answers to these questions and more when you RSVP for this event.
