Vancouver Island Wildlife: Sea Otters

Sea otters have been involved with the history of Vancouver Island for a long time. They were hunted to near extinction for their fur in times past, and it was thought that they wouldn't recover. However, with strict laws against hunting them or disturbing them, the sea otters have made a strong comeback on the north-west coast of Vancouver Island.

These photos are from Ed's recent trip to Quatsino, where they came across this group of otters while out in the boat.

It's a Coastal Lifestyle ... Pass It On!
