An Old Sea Otter’s Final Dive - Hakai Institute

An Old Sea Otter’s Final Dive

Every skeleton has its own personal story. In late June 2016, an unexpected carcass washed up near our ecological observatory on Calvert Island—an old male sea otter that our scientists knew from their research. And now, after 150 meticulous hours rebuilding his skeleton, he takes his final dive.
