Sea otters are special to me because…

This spring, we collaborated with a local GATE teacher whose students had taken an interest in sea otters. The 5th graders developed a project in which they taught younger students about sea otters. The result was some pretty awesome sea otter art which the students donated to The Otter Project to use in our campaign to end the no-otter zone.

Compiling the art is an on-going project, but I thought I’d share a few of the highlights here. The prompt seems to have been “Sea otters are special to me because…” and we got all sorts of reasons why sea otters are special!

About Allison

I am the new Executive Director of The Otter Project in Monterey, California! Originally from the Bay Area, I went to school in San Diego, and came back north to Monterey for graduate school, where I found my calling: saving sea otters! Working for The Otter Project combines my passion for environmental policy with my love of animals. When not advocating for sea otters, I enjoy yoga, volunteer wildlife rehab, reading, and spending time with my cat Alyssa, who, for the record, I did not name. I have been with The Otter Project since November of 2007.
