Welcome to the world, tiny otter pup! vine.co/v/iKYWXU9BHBv
Happy World Turtle Day! When this rescued loggerhead turtle arrived at the Aquarium last fall, it weighed just over three ounces. After seven months of care at the Aquarium, it weighs over two pounds! We’re caring for the young turtle until it’s big enough to be released back into the ocean.
Conservation works! Roughly 60% of the sea otters in Elkhorn Slough are descendants of our Sea Otter Program—and they’ve helped transform the Slough into a thriving ecosystem.
