Webinar: Sea Otter Heroes – The Predators that Saved an Ecosystem
December 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
What do you call a group of resting sea otters? A float? A huddle? A raft? A cuddle?
If your answer is raft, you’re either a good guesser or you know a few things about sea otters. But did you know they are also heroes? Join the Elakha Alliance on Tuesday December 5th at 6:00pm PDT for a webinar featuring guest speaker, Patricia Newman.
Patricia Newman, award-winning author and environmentalist, will lead us in a behind-the-scenes peek into a sea otter mystery that remained hidden until one scientist dared to think outside the box. Find out about his discovery and how it impacts YOU. Whether you’re a scientist, a parent, or a child, join us for some interactive fun and a raffle for a free copy of Sea Otter Heroes.
