Course Description:

The iconic southern sea otter is a protected species, but with less than 3,200 sea otters remaining, human-made obstacles to their survival rival any natural or environmental threats. To make matters worse, the Endangered Species Act that protects sea otters is threatened by new political challenges.

Join us for a photographic journey exploring the fascinating life of the southern sea otter, its history, and the challenges it faces—including those on the environmental and legal fronts. Then, we’ll take to the outdoors on a Sea Otter Adventure Walk along the shoreline of Moss Landing and Elkhorn Slough. Guided by observations and insights from author and photographer Kim Steinhardt, we’ll discover the secret life of the southern sea otter and witness firsthand some of the many challenges faced by this endangered creature.
