Recurring Event Event Series (See All)

 Sea Otter Awareness Week

Sept. 25–29 (Mon.–Fri.)

Every year, Sea Otter Awareness Week takes place during the last full week of September to celebrate and inspire deeper awareness of these marine mammals. The week is sponsored by Defenders of Wildlife, Sea Otter Savvy, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation.

Psst! We’ve got a sea-cret to share — you’re already hooked on sea otters, right? So why not get more delivered straight to your phone? Text OTTER to 844.786.2927,  and get ready for a daily dose of sea-rious fun facts, otterly uplifting af-fur-mations, and content that’s otter-this-world!

Sign up for Aquarium updates to get the latest otter-ific news from the Aquarium.

Daily dose of otter goodness

  • Sept. 25–29 (Mon.–Fri.)
  • Narrated sessions: 10:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., 3:30 p.m. PT

Tune in daily during Sea Otter Awareness Week to see our exhibit otters playing, grooming, snoozing, and eating. You can even catch live feeding and training sessions, where our Animal Care staff trains our otters to be active participants in their healthcare, or enrichment sessions, where we provide puzzles and challenges that enrich the lives of our feisty and inquisitive otters.
