Sea Otter Awareness Week

Sunday, September 22, 2019 - Saturday, September 28, 2019
12:00 PM - 4:00 PM

As part of this special week set aside to raise the profile of a sea otters, CMA will provide visitors with the chance to get an “inside look” at this endangered species.

In the Exploration Center, there will be a table set up with sea otter specimens. Get inside a sea otter’s head by taking a close look at a skull and see if you notice anything unusual. There will also be a pelt on display showcasing the sea otter’s thick fur. Without blubber, sea otters rely on their fur to keep warm in cold ocean water. Sea otters have the densest fur of any mammal with close to one million hairs per square inch!
