After ten otterly pawsome years, Abby the sea otter is returning to SeaWorld San Diego, her first home after being rescued as a pup when she was three days old.
Abby helped raise orphaned pups like herself and her love of playing with artificial kelp, taking ice baths and eating frozen clam pops made her a favorite with guests and Sea Otter Cam fans alike.
Now retired from our surrogate program, Abby’s move will give her lots of time for relaxocean, and help us make space for a fourth surrogate sea otter mom in the future. We’ll miss her, but know her move will help in the long-term recovery of California’s sea otter population.
