A baby California sea otter found weak and starving on a remote beach in Santa Barbara County has been nursed back to health at SeaWorld. The orphaned otter was about 5 days old and still had her umbilical cord attached when she came ashore July 21 at Jalama Beach. Wildlife officials don't know why the pup was abandoned by her mother.

Its nice that they are taking care of theotter but I think this might be one of the worst news articles ever posted. Arent animal rescues typical with the animal and marine parks?*** This post was edited by Audioslaved 8/2/2007 2:07:16 PM ***

Yes, it is typical. You got something against cute furry animals?

No but if I go to SFDK and spare an ant by not stepping on it will I make the news?

I'm frankly not that interested in your editorial opinion. You're free not to read it.

Not when they're in the form of a well-crafted coat...

I am thinking the mommy otter was eaten by a shark or something, and the otter was brought inland. But, since there are many more issues in my world, I am soft on animals, and this is nice. I love all the Sea Worlds, and that otter may say thanks one day.
AJ thinks that in all we do in this industry with million dollar this and that, someone took the time to help someone who can't help themselves.

As I've said many times before, A-B's stance on conservation and education is the perfect PR angle, and yet it actually benefits the world in a way that most people can appreciate.
