Conservation works! Roughly 60% of the sea otters in Elkhorn Slough are descendants of our Sea Otter Program—and they’ve helped transform the Slough into a thriving ecosystem. Get the full scoop in our latest video for Sea Otter Awareness Week!

This is huge news for us and a validation of all of the hard work our Sea Otter Program team has put into helping southern sea otters recover in central California. These findings may help sea otters return to habitat they once ranged in up and down the coast! 

Find out more about this work in our blog.

Sea Otter Awareness Week: Come for the floof, stay for the science! The graduates of our Sea Otter Program are munching their way to healthy coastal ecosystems, helping to restore wetlands like in Elkhorn Slough. This conservation win is just one of the many reasons we’re proud to be a part of the pawesome recovery of these ecosystem engineers!
