A quick note about our use of media


Fair warning: this is a nuts and bolts post, so if you’re just here for the otters, move along!

We use a lot of images in this blog to keep it visually appealing, easy and fun to read, and, well, pretty. We are very careful to only use images that 1)we took 2) we purchased the rights to or 3) are appropriately tagged through creative commons for reuse.

I am a HUGE fan of creative commons search, which allows people like us, who have a small budget but want a colorful blog, to make use of the variety of images out there on the web without having to worry about copyright. We make every effort to credit the author and link back to the source, which hopefully drives some traffic their way, making it a mutally beneficial setup. If you see some work you like, be sure to click through to visit their site.

We are also always looking for cool images to use, either of otters, ocean and marine related images, or anything else you think might look cool here. If you have any of that, let us know! We also have an Otter Project flickr page where users can upload content.

Thanks for reading this far. Ok, now back to the otters…


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.
