And now for some sea otter FUN…

It’s been a tough week for sea otters (and those who love them) so I thought I’d end it with a few uplifting sea otter links.

First is a lovely sea otter illustration done by a friend of mine. Mike Dutton is the husband of my best friend’s sister, and a great artist and comic book writer. Follow the link above to see more of his work–I find it enchanting, and whimsical. I know, I know, sea otters don’t hang out in cypress trees. But who knows, maybe they would if they could.

Second, is an adorable blog about an otter named, well, Otter. It’s a little strange, in a fun, otter who wants a Hannah Montana poster sort of way…but totally worth a visist, especially if you have kids (or pets that you treat like kids). I find it oddly compelling, especially the post about Otter Keeper going to work.  Otter looks like a river otter to me, but heck, we’ll let that slide.

As a policy organization, a lot of our work has to do with science and politics–but in addition to all the good they do our eco-system, sea otters are cultural icons as well, and its great to see them well represented in art and stories!

Enjoy, and have a great weekend!
