Otter Awareness Week at Cabrillo Marine Aquarium
As part of this special week set aside to raise the profile of a sea otters, Cabrillo Marine Aqarium will provide visitors with the chance to get an “inside look” at this endangered species. During Sea Otter Awareness Week, you can learn about their insides and outsides, their important role in California’s kelp forest ecosystem, the animals they eat and other fascinating sea otter facts!
In the Kelp Forest room in the Exhibit Hall, there will be a table set up with sea otter specimens. Get inside a sea otter’s head by taking a close look at a skull and see if you notice anything unusual. There will also be a pelt on display showcasing the sea otter’s thick fur. Also, take time to visit CMA’s library and peruse sea otter books and pick up your very own sea otter fact sheet.
