Michael Cooprider Mr. Burgett Marine Science April 16, 2016 8.07 Keystone Species Otters questions & Answers: 1. What is the mission of the Sea Otter Research and Conservation Program? The mission of the program is to study and to try to save the sea otters that are threatened. 2. How do you report a stranded otter (three steps)? Keep people and pets away from an otter. They tend to warm up very quickly i.e. wrapping them up in a blanket for a few seconds will cause an otter to overheat. Call one of the sea otter agencies listed to the right if something is wrong with the otter. Specialists will determine if the otter needs treatments. 3. What is so unique about a sea otter's coat and why is it vital for their survival? The sea otter has the densest fur coat in the animal kingdom. This is vital for their survival because they have to stay warm in and outside of the cold ocean water, which is usually difficult for small animals.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
