On Saturday, March 5th, a a pregnant wild sea otter took shelter in the Great Tide Pool of the Monterey Bay Aquarium, in Monterey, California, and gave birth to her pup, while guests and staff watched the miracle of life in action. Their sea otter researchers have been observing wild otters for years but had never gotten to see a birth this close.
Two days ago, on March 8th, the wild sea otter mom and her pup headed out into Monterey Bay, to begin their lives together. May they remain happy and healthy, as they play their part in returning the sea otter population to its former glory.
Thank-you, Monterey Bay Aquarium, in your tireless efforts that have created a bastion for the California sea otter.
