Newborn Sea Otter Pup Snuggles Up With Mom While Floating
 
01:18
Just days after a wild sea otter gave birth to an adorable little pup at the Great Tide Pool at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, the two love to snuggle together. The newborn pup tries to sleep while laying on top of her mom floating in the tide pool. The wild California sea otter sought refuge at the pool to give birth to the baby. The mom has spent time grooming and fluffing her newborn's fur to help her float. The aquarium says the duo will stay in the area before heading back into the wild.

They have long, slim bodies; short limbs, a small tail and webbed paws. Sea Otters are closely related to land animals like..Weasels... Badgers... and Minks. But Sea Otters spend most of the time in cold water. That's why they have a really thick coat of fur. In fact, it's the thickest coat of ALL animals. Their fur lets absolutely no water through, just like a rain coat. Sea Otters love nothing better than to float on their backs and roll around. "Look at me. Hey Mum, Look at me! I can tumble". And... they love to play, and groom each other's coats. "Oh hello... how's your coat looking? Weeeee yes, yes looking good" Lying on the beach and chilling out... with a bit of head-scratching... is fun too. Did you know...? Sea Otters are one of the few animals that use tools. They use rocks to smash open sea molluscs. Isn't that clever. When Sea Otters rest, they lie together in a big group called a raft. And they hold hands so no one floats away.

Please contact at www.artofconservation.ca/RMBolton Endangered wild Sea Otters (Enhydra lutris) play and swim in a kelp bed in waters off the coast of California, USA. Sea Otters, whose numbers were once estimated at 150,000--300,000, were hunted extensively for their fur between 1741 and 1911, and the world population fell to 1,000--2,000 individuals living in a fraction of their historic range. A subsequent international ban on hunting, conservation efforts, and reintroduction programs into previously populated areas have contributed to numbers rebounding, and the species now occupies about two-thirds of its former range. The recovery of the Sea Otter is considered an important success in marine conservation, although populations in the Aleutian Islands and California have recently declined or have plateaued at depressed levels. For these reasons, the Sea Otter remains classified as an endangered species.

Why Hundreds of Sea Otters Died in the Pacific | National Geographic

When these otters were found wheezing and struggling with seizures on beaches in Homer, Alaska, researchers were surprised. In the past, maybe 75 dying otters had washed ashore in a year, but in 2015, more than 300 died. Could this die-off be related to a large patch of warm water, known as the blob, that had formed in the Pacific? ➡ Subscribe: http://bit.ly/NatGeoSubscribe About National Geographic: National Geographic is the world's premium destination for science, exploration, and adventure.

Sea otters are a keystone species, meaning that an entire ecosystem depends on their presence. After they were nearly hunted to extinction for their dense fur, sea urchins (the otters' favorite food) nearly destroyed the Pacific kelp forests, a habitat that hundreds of species rely on for food and shelter. Thanks to the hard work of conservation scientists at places like the Monterey Bay Aquarium, sea otter populations are on their way back.

Sea Otters Vs. Urchins
 
01:40
It's not every day that the sea otters, Tanu and Milo, at the Vancouver Aquarium get huge delicious red sea urchins and by not every day, what I really mean is more like once or twice a year! So when they actually get the chance to munch on a couple of massive prickily urchins they go nuts. The otters simply squeeze the urchin until the bottom colapses and they are able to gain access to the tasty urchin insides. If you just can`t get enough of these uber cute otters check out the Otter Cam - http://www.vanaqua.org/ottercam

Fighting for Sea Otters

Take action to protect the Endangered Species Act. http://ejus.tc/2k5cNVA Anti-environment interests in the House and Senate backed by oil and gas interests, mining companies, and other extractive industries are currently orchestrating some of the most serious threats ever posed to the Endangered Species Act. The stakes are too high to allow this to happen. It takes millions of years for species like sea otters to evolve—but if we fail to protect our incredible, diverse fellow species from man made threats, they can be lost in the blink of an eye. Earthjustice, born in the same era as the Endangered Species Act, has been at the forefront of efforts to ensure this critical statute is enforced, acting in the interest of hundreds of plants and animals to ensure their survival.

California sea otters: a gap in the Point Reyes ecosystem
 
05:15
Sea otters once thrived off the entire west coast of North America. The kelp forests off of Point Reyes Seashore would have been prime otter habitat. But aside from the occasional wayward male, visitors at Point Reyes won't see California sea otters today. They were hunted to the brink of extinction in the 18th and 19th centuries for their thick pelts. A small population has recovered off the coast of central California, yet they have failed to expand their range. But why? Join me as I talk to otter experts about the status of their populations and why Sea Otters have failed to expand their range throughout California.

Sea Otter 101 | How Much Food Do Sea Otters Eat?
 
01:34
Sea otters eat A LOT of food. In fact, sea otters eating is what they're best known for—besides being extremely cute. From urchin to crab, worm and clam, octopus and abalone, sea otters eat over 100 species of marine invertebrate in the wild. And here at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, our resident sea otters get to practice their hunting skills thanks to our Sea Otter Aquarists. Learn from staffer Chris and his otterly pawesome friend Selka about what sea otters eat in the first episode of our new series: Sea Otter 101! _ These charismatic critters are among the most easily observed marine mammals in the bay. They're often spotted floating and foraging among kelp forests along the outer coves and bays but can sometimes be seen off sandy beaches—and even local harbors. Sea otters are a frequent sight off the Aquarium's ocean-view decks and occasionally even pay a visit to our Great Tide Pool. They're also found in Elkhorn Slough. Sea otters play an essential role in the health of Monterey Bay's kelp forest and estuary ecosystems. They eat sea urchins and other animals that graze on giant kelp, keeping them in check so the kelp forests can thrive and support a rich community of plants and animals. Similarly, sea otters keep estuary ecosystems healthy by eating crabs. This in turn allows sea slugs to thrive and eat algae that would otherwise coat and smother the eelgrass that fish need for food and shelter. Sea otters once thrived from Baja California and around the Pacific Rim to Russia and Japan before fur hunters nearly exterminated them in the 1700s and 1800s. The California population has grown from a group of about 50 survivors off Big Sur in 1938 to nearly 3,000 animals today. Although their numbers have increased, sea otters still face serious risks: oil from a single tanker spill near San Francisco or off the Central Coast would threaten the entire California sea otter population. The center of the population's range—from Monterey Bay to south of the Big Sur coast—can't support higher numbers of sea otters, so they need to keep expanding their range to find new areas with abundant food. Bites from white sharks is a major threat to sea otters in this area. The Aquarium partners with state, federal and academic researchers to study otters in the wild. The more we learn about sea otter behavior, biology and health, the better we can protect these threatened animals. ____ Whale hello there! We hope you liked this video.

Sea Otters: A Natural History
 
01:20:00
Join the Vancouver Aquarium for an insightful presentation on the natural history of sea otters. Sea otters were prized for their thick fur and hunted to extinction in British Columbia in a commercial fur trade that lasted from the late 1700s until 1911. They were reintroduced to BC from 1969 to 1972 when 89 Alaskan sea otters were released off the northwest coast of Vancouver Island. Since their “repatriation”, the Canadian sea otter population has grown and spread to over 5,000 along the outer coast and north end of Vancouver Island and off BC’s central coast. The return of sea otters, which has resulted in dramatic changes to coastal ecosystems, has not been without controversy. Sea otters depend on a thick fur and a prodigious appetite to stay warm in their chilly ocean environment and it is these two features - their luxurious fur coats and enormous appetites - that have made sea otters both loved and hated. In this event, the biology and ecology of this important and charismatic species will be presented – in what is truly a very natural history. Dr. Jane Watson is a research associate at the Vancouver Aquarium, is an adjunct professor with the Marine Mammal Unit at UBC and teaches biology at Vancouver Island University. She has spent the last 25 years studying sea otters and kelp on the west coast of Vancouver Island. She completed her B.Sc. at the University of British Columbia in 1981 and her Ph.D. at the University of California at Santa Cruz in 1993. She grew up on the BC coast, and knew from a very early age that she wanted to be marine biologist.
