Rialto, baby sea otter

Stranded sea otter pup transferred to Seattle Aquarium for rehabilitation

In early August, a sea otter pup was reported stranded on Rialto Beach, on the outer coast of Washington state. A male, the pup was estimated to be about three weeks old and was in critical condition; very thin and weak.

Shortly after the stranded pup was discovered, the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) contacted the Seattle Aquarium with a request to provide triage treatment to stabilize him. While the Aquarium is not a formal rehabilitation facility, we were selected due to our expertise with hand-raising sea otter pups, proximity to the pup’s location, and ongoing partnership with both USFWS and the Washington Department of Fish & Wildlife (WDFW).
