From kelp forests to fisheries, sea otters aid in studying ocean vitality.

A free public lecture by USGS Research Wildflife Biologist James Bodkin

  • Nearshore marine ecosystems face unprecedented challenges, regionally and globally, with threats from adjacent lands and oceans
  • Sea otter populations are experiencing reduced rates of increase across much of their range
  • Scientists are evaluating the status of north Pacific nearshore ecosystems, from southern California to southwest Alaska, looking for clues about processes influencing the sea otter and the nearshore environment
  • New technology is being used to study nearshore food webs, define the effects of adjacent watersheds, and demystify sea-otter behaviors.
