Sea Otter - Conservation Creature Plush
REEF Conservation Creatures are iconic marine species from REEF’s Volunteer Fish Survey Project regions. These marine creatures highlight the diversity of ocean ecosystems and encourage understanding and respect for marine life. We hope they inspire you to join REEF and learn more about the marine environment.
Sea Otters (Enhydra ultras) are one of the smallest marine mammals. They have no blubber to keep warm, but instead have extremely dense fur, about 1 million hairs per square inch! Because they help keep kelp-eating sea urchin populations under control, Sea Otters are considered a keystone species, which means they are very important to the health of their ecosystems. They are found in cool to temperate waters on the western coast of North America, in REEF's PAC region and the northern part of the TEP region.
You can chose to simply purchase the plush, or symbolically adopt the Conservation Creature and help further REEF's marine conservation mission.
