Connecting the Dots Between Sick Sea Otters and Land-Based Pollution - Livestream

Have you ever considered a sea otter as a canary in the coal mine? Sea otters are not only important species for the coastal ecosystem, but they also offer early warning signs of potential risks to humans. These charismatic marine mammals are affected by diseases associated with land-based parasites, fungi, bacteria, nutrients, and toxins. Many of these diseases can be spread through contaminated prey items, such as crabs, clams, and mussels, and are often harmful to humans.

Join Dr. Miller for a special Sea Otter Awareness Week presentation as she shares insights learned from 25 years of southern sea otter conservation work in California.
