Help Julie Packard’s Latest Action to Support the Sea Otters

March 10, 2010

Help Monterey Bay Aquarium‘s Executive Director Julie Packard in her latest action alert to save sea otters like Kit. The Aquarium’s Sea Otter Research and Conservation (SORAC) program has been trying to save the threatened southern sea otter since 1984.

Saving Sea Otters

August 3, 2009

The Monterey Bay Aquarium sent a letter yesterday about the plight of the sea otters. Here’s the aquarium’s page on Southern Sea Otters. Check out The Otter Project, too!

The Sea Otter Research and Recovery Act (H.R. 556) passed in the House late Tuesday afternoon by a vote of 316 to 107. Now the bill moves to the Senate; we’ll be sure to let you know when the time is right to ask for support from your Senator.

Here is the aquarium’s on-line Sea Otter Exhibit page and another page about sea otters with a video and activities. Here’s another video, too.

Pacific Islander Festival at Aquarium of the Pacific

June 3, 2012

Grandpa Ron and I visited the Aquarium of the Pacific to get a change of scenery for getting my steps in for today. The Pacific Islander Festival was going full swing. We had a great time! Watched a few hula performances as well as the sea otters, seadragons, jellies, crabs and penguins!

All the hula dancers did great!!

All of the sea otters were very active this afternoon!

I love how graceful the Leafy Seadragons are!

My favorite jellies! West Coast Sea Nettles

He looks hungry!

The penguins swim really fast! It is hard to get a good still photo of them swimming by!
