For thousands of years, sea otters and Oregon’s coastal native people had a strong relationship with each other and the nearshore marine environment. Tragically, sea otters were decimated by hunting for their pelts in the 1700s and 1800s, effectively eliminating them from Oregon by the early 1900s.
It’s long past time to rectify this wrong. And in doing so, to make our coastal and marine environment more robust and resilient.
Your donations fuel our use of the best available science to restore sea otters as part of our shared natural legacy.
