Endangered Sea Otters
Threats to otters can include pollution, habitat loss, human disturbance, crossing roads, trapping, competition with fisheries, and illegal trade of fur and pelts .
Here at the zoo, we have North American River Otters, which may be of least concern, but face the same threats and have the same importance as their otter counterparts. You can see Tahu, who just became a mom at the end of March, and her pups next to the wetland aviary or potentially spot them on the Otter Cam.
