Northern Sea Otter / Alaska SeaLife Centre

This week, the Alaska SeaLife Centre (ASLC) welcomed its first stranding patient for the 2012 season. On Monday, residents of Port Heiden discovered a deceased Northern sea otter and her surviving male pup along Meshik Beach. The Port Heiden community provided overnight care for the otter, feeding him every four hours as instructed by Centrer staff. The pup was then flown to King Salmon, where ASLC senior veterinarian Dr Pam Tuomi joined him on his journey to the professional care facility in Seward. Both Dr Tuomi and the otter arrived safely at the Centre late Tuesday night — via ZooBorns
