Fighting climate change! SEA OTTERS TO THE RESCUE!!

Over hunting of Sea Otters decades ago left sea urchins alone to grow and thrive by eating lots and lots of kelp, a.k.a. seaweed. As it turns out kelp can process more green house gases than just about anything on the planet. But with marauding sea urchins feeding on them, kelp has been crying help!

With the protection of Sea Otters and their growing numbers, they’re going after the sea urchins which once again are being put back in their place in the ecological balance of things. Healthy Sea Otter populations help fight climate change. Who’d a thunk it! Here’s more on the story from the Oregon Coast Aquarium.
