Sea otters lived along Oregon’s coast for thousands of years until fur traders wiped them out. But they may be on their way back. Track the history and plight of the sea otter along the coastal waters from California to Alaska. Follow a research crew in Neah Bay, WA. View spectacular underwater footage of the otters and their environment. Learn more from biologists about the hope for the otter’s survival as a species and the obstacles it faces.
