Sea Otter Awareness Week: The Road to Restoration in Oregon (9/18/22)

Blue Banner

Join Elakha’s Board President, Bob Bailey, as he discusses the next steps for sea otter reintroduction in Oregon.

Annually, throughout the last week of September (18-24), we celebrate sea otters during Sea Otter Awareness Week (SOAW). This year is the 20th anniversary of this celebration for these unique marine mammals! During this time we encourage zoological and educational institutions, governmental agencies and communities to plan and undertake events that highlight sea otters. These activities include sharing stories, disseminating science and generating media that inspire a deeper awareness of these unique marine mammals, their ecological importance and the many challenges they face.

The Elakha Alliance is pleased to kick off SOAW this year! Bob Bailey, Elakha Alliance’s Board President, will present on the results from the Elakha scientific Feasibility Study and what our next steps are return sea otters back to Oregon’s coastline.

This presentation is part of Sea Otter Savvy’s We Were Here sea otter program, which is dedicated to educating communities and stakeholders who are missing sea otters. We encourage you to take the We Were Here Sea Otter Stakeholder Survey if you have a couple of minutes today.

This Webinar will take place on Sunday September 18th, from 12:00pm-1:00pm PDT via Zoom. Use the form below to RSVP.
