Book a Tour to Meet Our Patients

This patient is a southern sea otter, a threatened species. Because sea otters are very dexterous and curious, we retrofitted several pool areas at our hospital to provide a safe space for juvenile and adult sea otters to receive life-saving care.

Many sea otters strand suffering from domoic acid toxicosis, toxoplasmosis, injury and other ailments.
