What “otter” place is better to celebrate International Sea Otter Awareness Day than the Oregon Coast Aquarium? Saturday, September 30, the Aquarium is holding a special recognition event to raise awareness of the vital role sea otters play in nearshore ecosystems.
Visit the Aquarium from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, September 30 for a variety of engaging activities and presentations planned to build your marine mammal knowledge and highlight the top-notch care that our four rescued sea otters receive. Learn firsthand how the Aquarium staff train, feed and care for sea otters during live presentations, and test your luck in a raffle afterwards. Guests on the behind-the-scenes tour will get a glimpse of what goes in to sea otter husbandry, from sustainably-sourced, restaurant-quality seafood preparation to the enormous collection of enrichment items that keep these mischievous marine mammals too busy to get into trouble. Additionally, guests can relax at the Otter Story Station, get crafty making otter headbands, and look for sea otter jokes, facts, and questions spread throughout our exhibits as they explore Oregon’s coastal and marine environments.Location
