A few more southern sea otters along Cannery Row are sporting new flipper tags thanks to researchers and veterinarians at the Aquarium and partner organizations. The tagging is part of a long-term study of sea otter health. The unique color combinations of the tags enable staff and volunteers to monitor the otters from shore. By observing individual otters over long periods, we gain insights into their lives and what might be slowing their recovery along the central California coast. Our Sea Otter Alliance partners include the U.S. Geological Survey, University of California Santa Cruz and California Department of Fish and Wildlife.
