Urchin for an Otter
Urchin for an Otter

Spiky but delicious! Buy a sea urchin snack for a rescued otter.

It's hard to believe that sea otters were hunted to local extinction on Canada's west coast as a result of the fur trade. Since being reintroduced in 1969 they are making a comeback which is great news for the environment!

Otters play a vital role in the ecosystem by keeping sea urchin populations under control. Without the help of sea otters and their voracious appetites, urchins can decimate kelp forests which provide essential habitat for prawns and young fish.

The Vancouver Aquarium provides a home for several rescued sea otters, including Hardy, who would be incredibly grateful for your gift of a delicious and nutritious urchin!
