Offshore drilling in sensitive coastal waters puts coastal economies, jobs and wildlife at unnecessary risk. That’s why we’re speaking out against the Administration’s proposed plan to open nearly all U.S. ocean waters, including six areas in California, to oil and gas drilling. Please add your voice to the effort to protect coastal waters by following the link in our profile. #youotterknow #protectourcoasts #montereybayaquarium

Our motion-sensor camera captured a female sea otter entering the road at the sea otter crossing in Moss Landing at night. DYK sea otters are active during both day and nighttime hours? We are glad to see her crossing when there's less traffic, but this road is also very dark at night. We have a team of partners working together to make this corridor safer for sea otters: Monterey County Public Works, @usfws , CA Department of Fish and Wildlife, @montereybayaquarium @castateparks , and Sea Otter Savvy are collaborating for improvements to the Moss Landing crossing sites, while volunteers from @elkhornslough_org , @themarinemammalcenter , @mosslandingmarinelabs and more are assisting with monitoring.Thanks to Team SOX (sea otter crossing)! It takes a village to save a sea otter! #wildlifecorridor #cameratrap

We have had some beautiful #californiawinter days with big crowds taking to the water on the weekends. Sea Otter Savvy visited the kayak rentals of #MorroBay Saturday to replenish their supply of our kayak adherent decals. Thanks Rock Kayak, @subseatours, Kayak Horizons—you are the savviest!

The gang at #MorroBay today. Why do you think sea otters hold up their paws or cover their eyes when napping? #respectthenap
