Elkhorn Slough harbors the largest tract of tidal salt marsh in California outside of the San Francisco Bay. It’s also home to the largest concentration of southern sea otters on the California coast. The slough and wetlands provide critical habitat for hundreds of species, including sea otters, sea lions, harbor seals, great egrets and brown pelicans.
Seaotters.com is an education and outreach initiative dedicated to raising awareness about the critical role scientific research plays in the understanding and conservation of the southern sea otter. In collaboration with researchers from the Monterey Bay Aquarium, UC Santa Cruz, UC Davis, U.S. Geological Survey, U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, California Department of Fish & Wildlife, among others, seaotters.com offers an unprecedented look into the extraordinary life and world of this endearing and threatened species.
Seaotters.com is home of the world’s first HD live video stream of southern sea otters in the wild.
Seaotters.com launched on March 24, 2012, the 23 year anniversary of the Exxon Valdez oil spill. Supplemental funding for initial content development was provided by way of the Luckenbach Oil Spills Trustee Council.
