Hello from Oregon!

Remember otter 649, the rescued male sea otter pup that was on exhibit for several months with companion otter, Gidget? We’re happy to announce he has a new name and a new home the Oregon Coast Aquarium. The orphaned pup was transported via private plane from Monterey to his new home in Newport, Oregon.

He was the 649th stranded otter to be brought into our sea otter program since 1984 and was only the sixth pup ever to go on exhibit.

Oswald had a furry companion on the plane, Juno– a female sea otter who stranded two months after Oswald and was also rescued and rehabilitated by our sea otter staff. Unlike 649 who was reared on exhibit, Juno was raised behind the scenes with surrogate mother Ivy. Our veterinarian, Dr. Mike Murray, and a mammalogist, escorted the two otters on the flight north. Juno’s found a new home at the Oregon Zoo, where animal caregivers look forward to introducing the youngster to their two resident adult sea otters. Both Oswald and Juno will make their public debuts this summer. 

We partner with Association of Zoos and Aquariums facilities across the country, like Oregon Coast Aquarium and Oregon Zoo, to find good homes for sea otters that can’t be released back to the wild.

Rearing animals like Oswald and Juno for lives at other homes when they aren’t candidates for release to the wild is helping the overall California sea otter population. Today, 36 rescued pups reared by surrogates in Monterey inspire millions of visitors at a dozen top aquariums and zoos in North America. Our resident sea otters and their predecessors have also raised dozens of pups that are back in the wild and having babies of their own.

Curious which otters are in the Sea Otter Exhibit now? Find out on our live web cam

Thanks for the tag, soracities!

I’ve never really thought about my favourite albums, because I don’t ever buy music so this was a challenge.

1. Stan Rogers - Fogarty’s Cove: the music of my childhood, the sound of my country, and the folk songs that my soul sings.

2. Bruce Springsteen - Greatest Hits: my dad gave me his old copy of this and I knew all the songs by heart. I remember singing along full blast driving through PEI at 2 am on a road trip and the saddest part about totaling my car on the last day of said road trip was realizing I left the CD in the player when we left the car in a scrap yard in NY.

3. The Antlers - Burst Apart: favourite songs being “Every Night My Teeth Are Falling Out” (one bad night I’ll hold the glass until the glass can hold me down /
and one bad night I’ll spill and spill until my feet begin to drown
) & “Putting the Dog to Sleep” (prove to me I’m not gonna die alone / put your arm ‘round my collarbone / and open the door).

4. David Bowie - Heroes: iconic.

5. Brown Bird - Salt for Salt: stumbled across this in a Southern Gothic playlist a few years ago and was swept away by the poetry of this band. Seriously - go listen to “Bilgewater” (when every day is like a war / you’ll find no strength from your usual source / … when every day’s like a war between the will to go on / and a wish that the world would spiral into the sun / turn your head toward the storm that’s surely coming along). Rest in peace, Dave.

6. Ben Howard - Every Kingdom: now that he’s finally taken down his private Facebook page (as far as speakoutloudinstead, who discovered it, and I can tell) I’m free to tell you that he had his name set as “Jojo Crocker” - as if Ben Howard could get any more adorable. Also his music is a gift from God.

Not going to tag anyone, because this turned into more rambling than I expected and I just did a music-related tag post. Still, if you’d like, feel free!
