Prepare to say, “Awww”: Rescued Sea Otter Pup at Aquarium of the Pacific

 A female sea otter abandoned by her mother was rescued in Northern California on Valentine’s Day. Government Wildlife officials determined she was unable to survive in the wild. The Aquarium of the Pacific stepped in and offered a home to the orphaned pup.

According to the Aquariom, “…staff members have been working around the clock to care for and feed her. “The baby otter has been gaining weight and is doing well.” The baby otter is estimated to be 9 to 10 weeks old. In a few months when she is ready she will join the other rescued otters on exhibit.
