Sure, wild sea otters are cute—but did you know they help promote recovery of seagrass beds in places like nearby Elkhorn Slough? In turn, those grasses provide an important habitat for young fish, protect shorelines from storms, and soak up carbon dioxide.
is that booty phat?
Having a bad day? Look at this otter eating a piece of lettuce.
I had the good fortune to show up at the zoo just a short time before the keepers did a feeding demonstration. These otters REALLY wanted that fish.
