Giving for the Holidays | Friends of the Sea Otter

Sea otters are an endangered species of animal that are currently protected by State and Federal laws. I was asked to share this information from an organization called "Friends of the Sea Otters" with my animal-loving readers. The Friends of the Sea Otters want to inform people about the Sea Otters' behaviors, habitat, and to recover this species of animal from the endangered list. If you're still thinking of gift ideas, here are a few suggestions from Friends of the Sea Otters. 

Notecards from the Friends of the Sea Otter Holiday Gift Store

The following is a guest post written by Jim Curland and Frank Reynolds.
There are several opportunities to help contribute to conserving sea otters and their populations this holiday season! Friends of the Sea Otter is involved in these efforts to make giving during the holidays a "win-win" situation for sea otters.

  1. Great ideas. Sea otters are the kids' favorites to see!

  2. They are very cute. Have a tremendous Thursday.

  3. California sea otters are so much fun to watch and remarkable marine mammals. For any bloggers who don't know, their numbers have been very slowly declining again (from around 3000) and as far as I know a reason hasn't been pinpointed. In the early 20th century they were believed extinct, but a small group was found in Big Sur and that was how the subspecies was brought back from the brink. I will look into this group and its work. Thanks for the information Ann!
