Otter Project Inc

aka The Otter Project / Monterey Coastkeeper

Monterey, CA

Mission

The Otter Project promotes the rapid recovery of the threatened California sea otter through science-based policy and advocacy.  The California sea otter population has grown in fits and starts and is currently in decline (2011). Listed under the Endangered Species Act, the entire Calif. population numbers around 2,800 animals. The California sea otter is both an umbrella species and a keystone species. As an umbrella species, protections created for the sea otter - and its habitat - will benefit a large variety of other species. As a keystone species, the otter is responsible for much of the structure of the ecosystem in which it lives. Diversity and productivity are enhanced by the return of the sea otter to its historic range.
