I’ve put a lot of thought into this, my first post. I couldn’t decide what to write about and then I figured that I should start at the beginning.
I’m terrible with time. I’m not certain how long I’ve been a fan of otters, but I know it’s been at least a couple of years. It all started with this video, a clip from the movie Saving Otter 501. From there I started watching other otter videos, Googling them, and reading books about them. I always thought that there were only sea otters and river otters. I learned that there are, in fact, 13 species of otters and their numbers are all on the decline. It’s worrisome, for sure. All species of otters are crucial to their ecosystems; the sea otter alone is the cornerstone of it’s environment.
I’ve traveled to visit famous otters, I’ve swam with otters, I’ve watched sea otters play at Elkhorn Slough, I even volunteer at a zoo where I talk sea otters. I’m looking forward to sharing my otter adventures with my readers and filling this page with helpful links, fun videos, and otter things. No, not those things, the otter ones 😉
