On January 5, 2010 a young sea otter pup was seen searching for her mom, without success, along California's Central Coast. Fortunately, help was at hand. Rescuers responded and with no sign of mom, the 5-week-old pup was lifted carefully from the water and saved from certain death.
The tiny pup was quickly transferred to the Monterey Bay Aquarium - the only rehabilitation center for southern sea otters in California.
Fortunately this pup had come to just the right place. With over 25 years experience of caring for sick and stranded sea otters, the Aquarium staff knew just what to do. The young otter, now named Kit, would stay at the Aquarium and learn everything it takes to be a successful sea otter.
Kit would need to go to college! At the Aquarium’s in-house Otter U, she can take classes in grooming, foraging, and diving.
