Sea Otter Awareness Week

September 20-26, 2020

Annually, throughout the last week of September, we celebrate sea otters during Sea Otter Awareness Week. We encourage zoological and educational institutions, governmental agencies and communities to plan and undertake events that highlight sea otters. These activities include sharing stories, disseminating science and generating media that inspire a deeper awareness of these unique marine mammals, their ecological importance and the many challenges they face.


2020 Events Coming Soon. We are keeping an eye on the COVID-19 situation and state and local guidelines as we plan for the 2020 events.
