Old fashioned sea otter

I absolutely love old fashioned animal illustrations, and I found this great sketch of an otter on land on Wiki Commons, which, if you’re not familiar with it, is a database of freely usable data files, all in the public domain.

The illustration is by A.E. Brehm, and it was done in 1927.

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.
