Discover the fascinating life of the elusive California sea otter through
this multimedia presentation, which showcases dramatic images of their antics and daily struggle to survive along with personal observations and a discussion of their current threatened status. We will also look at a few of the extraordinary adaptations the otter has undergone in evolving from a land animal to a sea creature, and consider the historic fur trade, some modern threats, and current litigation that impacts their recovery from near extinction. We will explore what this can teach us about our own relationship to the ocean, and what we can do to assure a sustainable future.
This special program is presented by former Administrative Law Judge Kim Steinhardt, who photographs and regularly writes and lectures on sea otters, and who leads natural and cultural history walks for the California
state parks along the coast near his home in Northern California.
