Sea Otters

The sea otters at the Aquarium are famous for being cute and fluffy, but there’s more to them than being adorable.


Home to rescued sea otters

All the sea otters living at the Vancouver Aquarium were rescued as orphaned pups. They have all been deemed non-releasable by Canadian and U.S. government agencies because they were all too young at rescue to have the necessary life skills to survive on their own in the wild.

Sea Otters inhabit kelp forests, bays and coastal waters near islands,
reefs, and fjords in the North Pacific Ocean.
