Remember Rialto, the tiny sea otter pup rescued only last month in Washington State? After spending some time recuperating at Seattle Aquarium, he’s now emigrated to Canada and will be living at Vancouver Aquarium. And look how much he’s grown!
Seattle Times writes:
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 sea otters are faced with.
Events are being held all over the U.S. and Lisbon, Portugal. Click here to find one near you!
