Otter Project Inc Charity Profile
Our Mission: The Otter Project exists to promote the rapid recovery of the California sea otter, an indicator of near shore ocean health, by facilitating research and communicating research results to the general public and policy makers. The southern sea otter is both an umbrella species and a 'keystone species.' As an umbrella species, protections created for the sea otteróand its habitatówill benefit a large variety of other species. As a keystone species, the otter is responsible for much of the structure of the ecosystem in which it lives. Diversity and productivity are enhanced by the return of the sea otter to its historic range.
