Recovery of Sea Otters in the Northeast Pacific: New Insights and Surprises from Soft-Bottom Ecosystems\ Sea otters are a model species for investigating how the recovery of a top marine predator impacts ocean ecosystems. As sea otters expand into new regions and habitats, such as saltmarsh ecosystems, they are unraveling secrets previously unknown to science. This presents an unprecedented learning opportunity, providing much-needed knowledge and tools for resource managers.\ Join Brent Hughes, Ph.D. (assistant professor, Department of Biology, Sonoma State University), to learn more about sea otter ecological roles in seagrass beds and how collaborative research ties to the conservation of sea otters in the Northeast Pacific.\ \ Advance registration required for this virtual event.
