Sea Otter Research and Conservation Program - Monterey Bay Aquarium, California
The Sea Otter Research and Conservation program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium is the only program in the world that rescues and rehabilitates sea otter pups with the aim of returning them to the wild. Since 1984, the program has received 125 animals - adults and pups -- many of them critically ill; it has saved 48 sea otters, with 33 released to the wild. More importantly, the program generates information about the care of sea otters that will be vital when large-scale rescue efforts are needed following an oil spill or other environmental catastrophe along California's central coast.
