Sea Otter Savvy, a research and educational organization and SJSU/MLML research affiliate, is hosting Sea Otter Awareness Week 2020. Held annually during the last week of September, Sea Otter Awareness Week (SOAW) is a celebration of these unique marine mammals. SOAW activities include include sharing stories, disseminating science, and generating media that inspire a deeper awareness of sea otters, their ecological importance, and the many challenges they face. The theme of this year’s SOAW is “Bridging The Gaps,” in acknowledgement of the breaches that exist in our understanding of how to keep marine ecosystems whole and resilient and how to protect vulnerable species. SOAW 2020 runs from September 20th-26th and is organized and sponsored by Sea Otter Savvy, Defenders of Wildlife, and the California Department of Parks and Recreation
