Sea Otter

Though they are an important part of marine ecosystems, entanglement in fishing nets, habitat loss and pollution from coastal oil spills threaten sea otters.

How Your Adoption Helps Sea Otters

Your adoption helps Defenders' work to educate people about the need to protect sea otters, and to help local communities and the fishing industry live in harmony with these animals. We're also continuing our efforts to protect sea otters and their habitat from the threat of oil spills.

All donations support our work to protect and restore the wildlife and wild places you care about.
