Sea Otter Awareness Week
Celebrate Sea Otter Awareness Week at the California Academy of Sciences from September 19–September 27.
Stop by the Project Lab to see unique sea otter specimens, drop by the Naturalist Center for some hands-on sea otter fun, and look for other special activities on the public floor all week.
Sea Otter Awareness Week falls on the last week in September and is an annual recognition of the vital role that sea otters play in the nearshore ecosystem. Each year, zoos, aquariums, natural history museums, marine institutions, filmmakers, researchers, academics, educators, and the public participate in various events and activities highlighting sea otters and their natural history and the various conservation issues that sea otters face.
