Get to know one of California’s most charming marine mammals-sea otters. These top predators boast hearty appetites, and they’re essential to maintaining the balance of nearshore ecosystems. This evening’s event, presented in partnership with Sea Otter Awareness Week, features talks by Ohlone Cafe co-founders Vincent Medina and Louis Trevino, recounting the long history of sea otters in Northern California-their thriving pre-colonial populations, being driven near to extinction through hunting, and today’s ongoing efforts to nurture and restore otter populations. And we’ll join Sea Otter Savvy’s Heather Barrett for the inside scoop on sea otter biology.

Presented in Partnership with Sea Otter Awareness Week

Food and drinks will be available to purchase in our Seaglass Restaurant and at the outdoor bar in Gallery 5 to enjoy in those designated spaces during After Dark. Please note that there is no drinking or eating allowed elsewhere inside the museum at this time.
