PEEC presents talk on sea otters

-A A +A

Esta Lee Albright will give an interactive talk on her work with orphaned sea otters in California at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday. The talk is free for Pajarito Environmental Education Center members and $5 per family for non-members.
Albright will discuss some of the problems and challenges that arise when wild animal habitats intersect with human habitats, and what happens when an animal species needs help. Albright was a volunteer “otter mom” for 14 years in the sea otter rehabilitation program at the Monterey Bay Aquarium, which was one of the first centers to raise a wild orphan sea otter successfully.  
Tuesday’s program will feature sea otter natural history through video, slides, artifacts and interaction. Kids ages seven and older will practice tool-using otter-style and all ages will enjoy learning about a marine mammal that lives close to shore.
