Don’t miss Lightning Talks: Sea Otters!

April 22, 2021 at 6pm Pacific time 
Join the Seattle Aquarium and five guest experts—virtually—to learn more about sea otters and their critical importance to the marine environment. During a series of tantalizing, five-minute talks, our guests will pique your interest to discover even more about the importance of these adorable, furry, shellfish-loving marine mammals.   

Highlights of the evening’s guests include coastal marine ecologist Dr. Lynn Lee, who will discuss how collaborative kelp forest restoration work among the Haida Nation, government agencies, commercial fishing industry and academia leads to ecosystem conservation gains for people and place. Zachary Randell of Oregon State University will share a presentation on sea otters and ecological resilience. And John Goodell of the Elakha Alliance will make a case for restoring sea otters to the Oregon coast. Join us on April 22 for these speakers and more!

Registration will close at 4pm Pacific time on April 22. By registering, you'll receive a direct link to the broadcast after 4pm on the day of the event
