Project Sea Otter

Frances just rang from the US Fish and Wildlife Service in Anchorage to update our tasks for

Project Sea Otter

Northern Sea Otters are listed as threatened in the Aleutians arc, suspected leading cause of decline is now predation by Killer Whales.  We will be assisting the US Fish and Wildlife Service, recording presence or absence of Sea Otters in bays, and noting Killer Whales position and taking photo’s for identification, for marine biologists live projects.

This will be a very rewarding and exciting project as we journey along the Aleutian volcanic 'Ring of Fire'
More details on the main website pages.
