Sea Otter Population
Changes in California
Bautista, Mike Lopez and
here to see sea otters LIVE!!!!
This is the story of Shelly the sea otter. She lives in the Pacific
Ocean off the shores of southern California. Right now she's basking
in the sun, holding herself in place by wrapping the kelp around her body.
She has many sea otter friends that live in the area today, but they
face many hazards because of humans. What might those hazards be? Sea
otters were on the brink of extinction just 40 years ago, with only 38 remaining
in California. Today there are many more...how? How many? Will
it last or will Shelly and her friends still be in danger of not passing
