The Otter Project

Dedicated to promoting the recovery of the California sea otter, The Otter Project is active in a variety of areas to stop harmful actions like offshore oil drilling, and they promote awareness by facilitating and communicating research with the public and policy makers. As an umbrella species and a “keystone species,” the survival of the southern sea otter is imperative for more than just itself – impact on other marine life and the structure of the ecosystem in which it lives would be drastic if these adorable aquatic friends were lost.
