  • And today we're taking you to an aquarium in California, where two adults sea otters are helping rehabilitate abandoned pups so they can learn how to survive in the wild.

  • We're here today at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

  • Aquarium itself was designed originally toe highlight the marine life, the diversity and the richness of marine life in this local environment.

  • But we work with stranded sea otters, the sea otters air coming in with a variety of injuries.

  • Illness, orphaned pups.

  • The animals that air here are being rehabilitated for released back into the wild.

  • We're basically working with nine sea otters behind the scenes right now.

  • The youngest and the newest is a two week old pup who it's kind of difficult to see, but she's sleeping on the haul out right now.

  • She will be here behind the scenes in in what we call our intensive care unit for probably six more weeks before we start introductions with Silka so appear on the roof.

  • We've got two tanks where we keep animals.

  • Sea otters wind up eating anywhere, depending on what treatments they're doing between 25 35% of their body weight today, which is obviously a lot of food.

  • If we're going in to do a feeding, let's say with the pep, we want to be able to have a disguise on the disguises that we use gets mostly to break up our human form.

  • We're trying to minimize the likelihood that the individual pups are gonna habituate.

  • Tow us.

  • Uh, bottom.

  • Hang on.

  • They might want to film you tossing that in.

  • Are you okay with that?

  • Ultimately, the goal here is that we want to provide and enriched and rewarding environment for these animals that are extremely intelligent, and it's kind of a combination of fun and work for them while they're out here.
